Re: sketching
I've often wanted to make an issue of the fact that Quondam has an infinite collection precisely because almost all of it is in digital form. Any image and any cad database in the collection holds the potential to propagate any number of new images and databases. Moreover, each 3D CAD database holds the potential to generate any number of perspectives, axonometrics, and color/shaded renderings.

Re: Louis Kahn's son
Joseph Burton, "Notes from Volume Zero: Louis Kahn and the Language of God" in Perspecta 20 (Cambridge, MA: MIT Press, 1983).
I remember this being an interesting article with regard to Kahn, design, spirituality, and religion.

Le Corbusier 1957-1965
Volume 7 of the Oeuvre Complète
Virtually all the architecture in this book proved to be well ahead of it's time.

All architecture is artificial, even to the point where you can say that architecture is the most artificial thing on this planet. And if architecture is to be truthful, it can really only be truthful to its artificiality. Moreover, it is that architecture that most pushes its artificiality to the extreme/edge that becomes the best architecture.
I'm speaking here mostly of real architecture, designs that are built. Virtual architecture (designs that could be built but aren't) and post-real virtual architecture (architecture that was built but no longer exists) express their truthfulness in other ways.
