One thought on “Renaissance Architecture and Ornament in Spain”

  1. It always facinates me looking at the works of historical architects. It amazes me the level of detail and the skill involved in producing drawings. It seems to be a talent that is fading from society with many current architects relying to heavily on computers to produce drawings for them.
