Does an architect lose credibility if he can’t sketch?

I think sketching is a skill (although very useful), but what's more important is to communicate your "concept" (through any medium of presentation).

In my opinion an architect should be able to sketch because what's the point if his/her CONCEPTS are not getting conveyed? and one more thing though there are 100 means of presentation medium.. SKETCHING is the evergreen technique for to communicate your ideas..

I believe that the this depends on if the architect possesses other skills with which to present, such as model making. However, the architect will have a difficult time if he/she/other does not have an effective manner with which to present at all.

Easy and faster way of communicating your Concept is sketching (if one knows to sketch)when compare to any other electronic medium.

I think sketching is a skill which can be improved architects credibility is not completely depended on it..if you take Frank Ghery he scribbles and then makes a form out of that...
