I do love to look at these sketches. Like someone else said, it must be rewarding (for the architect and the owner) to see a sketch come to life.

Can someone explain what the term "sympathetic" means in the description of the Modernist Dream? I like contemporary architecture and even like some of the modern additions to older houses here on Houzz, but this looks anything but sympathetic... it looks like a metal shipping container parked next to a traditional house. What am I not appreciating here?

I agree that hand drawn illustrations are better than computer any day. My uncle is an architectural illustrator and here are a few of his countless hundreds of sketches.
