HOW DO YOU USE DRAWING TO HELP A CLIENT VISUALIZE THEIR IDEAS?
“Drawing with my client is quick and exciting. It allows us to express the essential character of a design, whether it is the shape and relationship of the rooms, or the rhythm of a façade. Despite the digital tools we have available, the sketch remains the quickest way to present visual ideas, stimulate discussion, and record the essence of a design concept.”
