Cryptic and interpretable, architects must be able to comprehend and learn from the marks made. They project onto a sketch in anticipation of a building. In an attempt to visualize the unknown a sketch is a preparation, a fragment of the finished entity. As marginal, sketches provide for the unseen contingencies, because they account for poetic and emotional reflection not always found in representative media. Architectural sketches are easily changed and can utilize various combinations to facilitate dialogue. Sketches are active, as the mind can play with and ponder them long after the initial action is completed. They identify with the conceptual and that which is more discernable. Undetermined, they extend between two realms and, like the grotesque, act as intermediaries in the design process. They have few rules or boundaries, beyond those imposed by the architect 's imagination.
