Prints and drawings not on display in the galleries can be seen in the Prints & Drawings Study Room. These include fashion illustrations, architectural drawings, design drawings, watercolours, posters and much more,. To make it easier for teachers and lecturers to access the most popular material with groups, we have developed themed Study Room Resources which contain original prints and drawings.

This resources contains a selection of some of the different types of drawings architects produce at different stages of the design process in order to develop and communicate their ideas. Produced in the 1770s to the late 1990s they also demonstrate how architects’ approaches to drawing and techniques have evolved over time. There are over 1.5 million architectural drawings in the V&A and RIBA Architecture collections, this selection is a small sample.
