Architectural drawing is not just for architects. The cubist s of the early 20th Century may have thought they were onto something new w hen they abstracted reality in that manner but architects have known for ce nturies that their technical drawings can show an object from all sides.

\n

Isometric perspectives can picture a building's various planes as a t ransparent jigsaw puzzle. "Shop" drawings sometimes overlapped elevations a nd plans onto one sheet of paper. Conceptually speaking\, a building's actu al plan will never again be seen when the building is finally built.

\n< p>20th Century architectural drawings range from idealized perspectives mad e to sell the project to flattened elevations and abstracted plans. Frank L loyd Wright and his renderers used all these to both sell the idea to the c lient and communicate to the workmen how to assemble all the parts.

\n

Abel Faidy\, long one of Chicago's most eccentric modernists\, created doz ens of pencil drawings in his Villa Dionysos designs to express the "Golden Section" while inadvertently picturing the extreme class differences of th ose who were to work and live in that magnificent embassy.

\n

And long before computers changed an architect's tools forever\, Bertrand Goldberg built some of the most astonishing and complex buildings of the 20th Centur y using the same methods that countless builders have used for thousands of years.

\n

ArchiTech Gallery\, Chicago's only commercial gallery of ar chitectural art\, has assembled works by Wright\, Goldberg and other master s of the medium to tell this story of 20th Century architecture.

\n

Th is exhibition and sale of important works on paper begins Friday\, Septembe r 2nd and runs through Saturday\, December 31st\, 2011.
