Sense of Scale and the Digital Age of Architecture
... if you're having a problem with a perception and understanding of architectural scale, I don't think digital media is to blame.
When I was in school, like 35 years ago, whenever I wasn't sure whether what I was drawing was too big or too small, I would quickly draw a plan of my drawing table (3'x6') next to the plan I was drawing. I could thus more easily gauge my planning decisions via comparison with a dimension I knew intimately. I can still quickly do the same type of scale comparison via digital media, although now far more enhanced.
This is a plan of the room I'm presently working in:

Stab one: a thesis declaration
Judging by the subtext of each of the five paragraphs you just posted above, it looks like "conditioning" is what really permeates your thesis.
Wondering, will the critical conditioning of a new ideology of space for the 21st century happen more naturally or more artificially?
Speaking of hospitals, currently reading Le Corbusier's Venice Hospital (Hashim Sarkis, editor). It too touches on the notion of a "new ideology of space".

Here's the room in 3D:

Here's the room within the Villa Rotunda, which is within the plan I'm currently working on:

Here's more of the drawing I'm currently working on:

Here's the full extent of the drawing:

In many ways, architectural scale is a comparative study, and digital media has made 1::1 comparison easy.
