There is no doubt that the advances in digital technology have advanced the architecture field. Architects have more tools than ever before to create accurate, lifelike designs. The renderings that programs like Revit, Rhino and Sketchup can generate are closer to the end product than we’ve ever been able to get before.
I like computers, and we at RS&H use these programs on a daily basis. But there is another tool that I find the most essential for us architects: the pencil.
