ruminations about architecture and design

is the best art spontaneous?

Since my paycheck depends on my ability to revise a design multiple times, with the aim of improving upon an initial concept, or when necessary, discarding that concept in near entirety, its reasonable to say "no" to the question posed.

However, on a personal level I hold the roughest sketches in higher regard than finished products. A sketch often has a power that transcends reality. Reality, with all of its various bureaucracies and committees tends to trample that power.Square pegs are shaved into rounds, values are compromised, inferior materials are settled on for the sake of economy, and above all--a deadline must be met--for without deadlines, we are all dead.
