Composed of more than two million documents –– more than half of which are drawings –– the COAC Historical Archive has one of the main collections devoted to what we could call "architectural essays", which is why in many cases the drawing has an attempt but also an interpretation of the already built architecture.

The selection of the 152 drawings that are reproduced here has been carried out according to the very different scales of architectural practice –– from interior design to urban planning–– and to the extensive historical period that it covers, from 1834 to the present.

A selection that is accompanied by comments of many different disciplines and perspectives: from architecture and photography, to literature and art.

An essential book for libraries and also for drawing and architecture’s lovers.
