Architectural Drawings- Part 1. Defining Shapes

Catalog of Shapes. Part 1.

I've been thinking a lot about how to start the building design process, I started thinking about colour first...but quickly shifted my focus to shape. After doing some research my favourite architect is Le Corbusier(1887-1965). His shapes were magnificent and so were his painting, sculptures and furniture designs.
My course focuses a lot on the technical aspect of building designs, which is really great but I feel it's not enough to just overlook the overall appearance of a building in some other catagory.....I'd really like to find out how we got here? in terms of architecture..this is such a massive question but I'm slowly scratching flecks aways from the surface of the topic.

p.s I am so messy. How did Techincal drafters ever be creative and neat...Is it even possible to learn?
