There are still drawings done “by hand,” in which impressive architectural spaces of atmospheric density and high suggestive effect are created. Hand-drawn Worlds presents exemplary works from 21 internationally-known contemporary architects and artists in all their variety. Flanked by illustrative essays, fantastic rooms of great perfection and unmistakeable character develop in more than 120 large-format illustrations.
