1950s architectural sketches

11 Dec 2009

Here are some more pages from the July 1951 edition of the Architectural Review that I got my hands on this week. I think the drawings and collages communicate the ideas in the article really clearly. I adore hand drawings like these, and my favourite is the last picture with the lamp posts drawn on. I think I'll try out this kind of technique myself!

Don't you think the drawings are delightful?!

I love 50s architechture done properly.
I recently went an hour out of montreal on a bus trip and was amazed at the little cottages and grand houses that came out of that era, so simple and majestic.
