Project sketches are done very quickly to prepare for either an animated film depicting the ambiance of the spaces within the scheme or simply to show approach viewpoints and configuration of tower lobby designs and public realms. Sketches also show the landscape features of a project and the architectural treatment of facades of tall buildings.

“God created paper,” Aalto wrote, “for the purpose of drawing architecture on it. Everything else is, at least for me, an abuse of paper.” [taken from a script for an exhibition at the Barbican, Shigeru Ban on Aalto, 2007]
