From 1914 until 1961, the University of Washington's Department of Architecture kept a well-organized collection of its students' drawings. This digital collection from the University of Washington brings together hundreds of these drawings for consideration by the web-browsing public. Many of the drawings contain marks from critiques, and many of them bear the marks of Lionel Pries, a highly regarded architecture professor at the school from the 1920s to the 1940s. Visitors can learn about architectural education assignment sequence by browsing through sections on the left-hand side of the page titled Student Drawings, Analytiques, and History of Ornament. The sample drawings on the bottom of the collection homepage include works by Minoru Yamasaki, the architect of the World Trade Center towers. Finally, visitors can make their way through the Conserving the Collection area, as it provides wonderful insights into how the collection has been preserved.
