Modern architecture has moved to the computer in a big way. We can use a computer for planning, drawings, CAD design, layout and blueprints.

But not that long ago all those architectural drawings were painstakingly rendered on paper. I came across this web resource that achieves hundreds of architectural drawing from the 18th century. And they are available for study.

–> National Archives.

“They include plans, elevations, sections and perspective drawings of individual buildings and parts, details and features of buildings and other built structures…”

Like a lot of government sites the archive is a bit hard to navigate, but definitely some interesting stuff.
