<about their design with models, and after only do they draw...(The
Archtrion method). Our practise here is to first draw, then verify with a
model...( The ArchiCad method)>>


You may find this with some new computer architects and some ot the big timers who sketch a skyscraper and let the rest of the firm make it work.

However I think most architects follow the familliar sketching of projects in plan and schematics, combining with elevations and perspective studes. They will often start with a site plan and an elevation or perspective, simply to give the client a first view of the concept.

Then floor plans are developed with more refined elevations and sections. I wonder how many can AFFORD to make models before program and concept are addressed in drawings?

Frankly I thought that Architrion was difficult to use in the office precisely because I like to start with the plan and in the end need a program based in construction drawings.

BTW I heard that in France The architect produces a sort of book of drawings and specifications of a less detailed scale... that many parts of the design are not detailed by the architect but are left to contractors and engineers to work out.
Is this at all correct? And can you compare to American construction drawings?
