Drawing Toward Home

National Building Museum

If you are in the Washington DC area and love architectural drawings, check out the new exhibit Drawing Toward Home at the National Building Museum.

The exhibit showcases one hundred drawings, plans, and elevations of home architecture found throughout New England. The collection includes drawings of family houses, cottages, and estate houses.

I visited the museum today and saw that some of the hand-drawn architectural drawings displayed date back to 1790’s. The sketches and final drawings were incredibly detailed and showed artistic sophistication.
