A few months ago Matt gave me a call, asking whether I could check my e-mail.

“Well, sort of, but I’m walking down the street to have lunch with K.”

“Are you sure you can’t look now?”

“Well, I can look on my phone. What’s up?”

“Just something I’d like you to check out, and I think you’ll like.”

Matt’s surprise was a series of wireframe renderings he had put together (in fact I think his intern did these, but whatever). Looking at the renderings on an iPhone didn’t do them justice, although that didn’t stop us from huddling around my phone for an hour over lunch.

One dimensional floorplans and elevations are great. K and I are pretty good at interpreting architectural drawings–at envisioning how things will look when they’re built. Still, there’s no replacement for perspective drawings.

After all, we can all use a little perspective in our lives.
