The discreet charm of the sketch
Languages of publication
The sketch is an inseparable part of the process of creating an architectural space, being present at every stage of its development ‒ during the stage when an idea is formed, all the way to the moment of the work itself. It is useful as a means of writing down an architect’s thoughts, in presenting his work to a client, as well as a supporting tool during the process of overseeing the construction of a building. Thanks to its indeterminate nature it stimulates the imagination during the early stages of design, being at the same time the easiest means of communicating one’s thoughts on the construction site. The article outlines the usefulness of the sketch as a tool that an architect can use, basing on the examples provided by contemporary creators of architecture.
