In recent decades the practice of architectural drawing has been further extended the use - often reckless - of images produced by naively evoke the visual effect of the forms. The widespread distribution of rendering softwares, in hindsight, has resulted to promote a use of ‘fake photographs’, rather than by ‘real drawings’. The figurative techniques that characterized the architectural drawing until the end of the twentieth century, in most cases, were quickly replaced by the results of a figurative culture that is still undeveloped. Despite the success of these images, which can create false illusions about their real ability to communicate, maybe we should - as ‘scholars’ of representation - to advance openly doubts about their effectiveness. On the other hand, while using very similar computer technologies, in some fields of knowledge in which it is essential that communication through pictures is without any risk of ambiguity - as happens in medicine, life sciences or physics - were explored ways to represent founded on the need to discretize the elements and make them immediately apparent, even at the sacrifice of the yield determined of their visual quality. In a time when the Representation is struggling to rebuild its own statute figurative, these images - without being able to be as examples - are an sample of precision, clarity and effectiveness of communication, similar - in some cases significant - the outcomes achieved in contemporary painting. In reviewing today the tools of design architecture, it is more than ever essential to consider the invitation of Klee: "we must make visible and not remake what is visible".
