I don't think there's any real substitute for drawing by hand; it should be part of the art that architects do. There is a time and place for computer-generated work, but they should not be considered the 'next generation', or a logical evolution that renders hand-drawing obsolete.

Analogies can be made to a hand-written letter versus a type-written letter, or a painted portrait versus a photographic portrait--both communicate information, but evoke very different attitudes. A drawing made by hand has as much to say about the person who created it as it does the subject. There is too often a blandness or lack of individuality in computer work; the creator remains anonymous. You can't interpret the hand.

The drawings shown here are from built and unbuilt projects over the past twenty years.
