Throughout history, architects have relied on drawings both to develop their ideas and communicate their vision to the world. This gorgeous collection brings together more
than 250 of the finest architectural drawings of all time, revealing each architect’s process and personality as never before. Creatively paired to stimulate the imagination, the
illustrations span the centuries and range from sketches to renderings, simple to intricate, built projects to a utopian ideal, famous to rarely seen – a true celebration
of the art of architecture.
Trained and registered as an architect, Helen Thomas spent 10 years as a senior lecturer in London schools of architecture, before moving to the new V&A/RIBA Architecture Collections at the V&A where she experimented with various ways of exploring and discussing architecture with a variety of audiences.
