We're in complete agreement on all points, I think. Yes, we're talking about two completely different functions, but, as you point out so well, the graphic underpinnings of architectural design are everywhere apparent, even in its three dimensional manifestation. The language three-dimesional form cannot be divorced from the language of two-dimensional drafting; in fact, there could be no three-dimensional form communicated to the contractor at all without the use of the two-dimensional language of graphics. So, in a broad sense, architecural drafting and design is a hybrid of graphic design and sculpture.
