Drawing is communication. As an architectural or concept drawing it is rather a sentence than a text. It is concise, to-the-point. Like a sentence: it can be an assertion, an order, an exclamation, a wish and a question.
Lines resemble words more than anything. They can have meaning in themselves but usually form part of a larger unit.
Sketching is the designer’s dialogue with himself. The sketch: an interrogative sentence. And if the question is a good one, it contains the answer too.
