You've come to the right place, since I'm an architectural draftsman with a degree in graphic design. This is a subject that I've long been interested in, too. Back in the seventies, for example, "super graphics" on Post-Modern buildings were in vogue - sort of like racing stripes for buildings, but they've faded into obscurity since then. Today, though, I see some elements of the same thing, only, instead of being painted onto a building's surface, there are juxtapositions of different materials, used in an almost graphic way. Another aspect of the line between architecture and graphic design is the adaptation of the Mondrian layout in some building facades, and even in floor plans, as well. These tendencies seem to come and go, though, as styles ebb and wane.
