Wolf Prix and Helmut Swiczinsky's desire to capture a feeling or emotion regarding a project through their blind sketches raises more questions than providing answers. One can see that the sketch on the previous page is similar to the view on this page. But why? What is to determine the sketch's translation? In this case the sketch influenced, strangely enough, a view of the structure from the building across the street; a view from below is virtually impossible, merely a few pieces of structure peek over the existing parapet. The intuitive nature of the sketch is a given, but its translation as either plan, section, perspective or any other convention suggests that arbitrariness plays a great part, and their role as artists is greater than with most architects.
