Art or Architectural Drawings :: You Decide

I enjoy using Pinterest very much. I use it to Pin some DIY projects which I’m still yet to try to do one; but mostly I’m there for awesome architectural inspirations. Lately I have been obsessed with architectural collages that can easily be mistaken for beautiful artworks. Architectural drawing is a tool that an architect uses to communicate ideas whereas art is intended to be appreciated for their beauty or emotional power. I have gathered a few examples of architectural drawings that simply feeds the artistic soul of a designer. These drawings are not only communicating ideas but they can also easily be mounted to a wall and be appreciated, simply for their beauty.

During my college years I used to checkout Alex Hogrefe‘s youtube photoshop tutorial and today I stumbled upon his website where he demonstrates step by step guide, to creating an architectural collage drawing. Hope some of you will find it helpful in creating your collage drawings.
