Check out this Hidden City article about a Paul Cret exhibition at the Woodlands.

    Cret Exhibition Captures Vibrations Of The City
    Editor's note: Architectural drawing is a dying art. Before the digital revolution gave birth to drafting software, renderings of buildings, bridges, barrel vaults, and bell towers were meticulously illustrated by hand. And although most of the technical work done for architectural and engineering firms in the past left no room for emotion or expression, a human touch, and a physical object, remained.
