The Art of Architecture

David Jameson, who in three years has built the inventory at ArchiTech to include hundreds of exquisitely rendered original designs and drawings by some of the greatest architects of all time, cautions that by the time he circulates pictures of the architectural art he is featuring in his gallery they may already be gone.

Prominent in his collection are works by Frank Lloyd Wright, Charles Rennie Mackintosh and the firm of Viollet le Duc.
     
Some architectural drawings go as far back as the 18th century, when architect and designer Giambattista Piranesi, an obsessed artist, produced scores of engravings.

Jameson’s current show, “The Perfect Chair,” covers the 70-year career of Henry P. Glass and includes historical European and American designs from the 19th and 20th centuries as well as contemporary fantasy designs by contemporary Chicago architects.
