Come Peruse a Trove of the Web's Best Architectural Drawings

Architectural drawing may have been largely superseded by computer modeling over the last few decades, but all is not yet lost for the hand-drawn diagram. If anything, the increasing novelty of the practice has led to more appreciation of it as an art form, rose-tinted glasses being what they are. Recently, Arch Daily threw a spotlight on one of the best places for structure-focused illustrations, diagrams, and artworks on the Tumblrsphere, a blog called, simply enough, Drawing ARCHITECTURE. Featuring student and professional work in equal measure, plus the occasional masterpiece by a heavy-hitter (see above), the site strikes a great balance between grounded studies of form, abstract what ifs, and Seussian surrealities. Check out some of the highlights below:
