In the article, “Architecture and Lost Art of Drawing” by Michael Graves, which was published in September 1, 2012, in New York Times, Graves states that technology has began to outweigh the natural passion for drawing and art. Graves simply means the basics and love for drawings are not putting up enough of a competition towards computers and digital work. He has defined architectural drawings into three groups “Referential sketch”, “Preparatory study” and “Definitive drawing”. I agree with Graves that the final step, definitive drawings, is exceptional for use by computers and the other steps are done by the artist themselves. The love for art and drawing may be fading away in time due to the ability of everything being digital, but Graves has positive thoughts to what drawings bring to the table for artists.
