Sketching is like a vehicle for gifting joyrides to your designs. Architects may have to haul their designs to board rooms, to the contractors, to clients or even to a worker on site. A quick efficient tool, brief, direct, communicative and accentuated to your taste, sketches are ability demonstrators too which convey a lot of confidence to all stakeholders. It is a pity that this simple technique is not being stressed upon well enough in modern architectural education in present times.
