Architecture on Paper

Architecture on Paper A collection of rare architectural drawings from some of the world's greatest architects. All of our drawings are available for sale or trade.

We will also purchase any drawings you wish to sell. Our collection includes drawings by Frank Lloyd Wright, Philip Johnson, Louis Sullivan, Frank Gehry, Richard Neutra and others. Preliminary architectural drawings of one of the world's most famous man made structures, The Empire State Building, are also featured. As the photos shown here are somewhat limited in quality and detail, additional photos will be provided upon request. Even if you are neither a seller nor a buyer, feel free to browse around. These drawings provide a glimpse into the thoughts of some of our greatest artists. They document the evolution of building design from the earliest stages to final presentation.

ORDER THE NEW BOOK Alfonso Iannelli: Modern By Design.

Well written by David Jameson, owner of Architech Gallery, it documents Iannelli's career with prose, as well as over 350 images of his drawings, sculpture, and paintings.

Its a VERY interesting biography of a largely unknown giant of modernism. http://www.top-five-books.com/Iannelli.html

The Grady Gammage Auditorium drawing was just sold to a buyer in Las Vegas. It is an excellent design fashioned after an earlier plan for a Baghdad Opera house which was never built. The Gammage Auditorium is still in use today at ASU.

Amazing drawings to see!
I have an original Frank Lloyd Wright drawing, is it worth anything. It's confirmed as a work done by him.
