The collection of architectural drawings was formed on the basis of the collection of the former Museum of Architecture. It contains preliminary, competition, reconstruction and final drafts – drawings, plans, cross-sections, development drawings, sketches, constructions, details etc. – of architectural objects (buildings of various function, monuments, urban spaces – squares, parks, etc.). It also includes measurements, development drawings, schemes of excavations, and visualisations of no longer existing objects, as well as sketches and drafts of interiors of buildings of various function, exhibition pavilions, furniture, works of applied art (ceramic, textile, glass etc.), costumes, set design and industrial design.
The collection reflects the priorities, principles and architectural fashions of different periods and social structures. The works in the collection cover the period from the early 19th to the early 21st century and include drafts from the period of tsarist Russia, drafts of buildings created in interwar Lithuania, drafts of prefabricated buildings of the Soviet period, and works by Lithuanian architects living in other countries. Works by the most outstanding architects who lived in Lithuania – Nikolay Chagin, Antanas Vivulskis, Vladimiras Dubeneckis, Vladimir Zubov, Vytautas Landsbergis-Žemkalnis, Algimantas and Vytautas Nasvytis, Eduardas Chlomauskas, Vytautas Edmundas Čekanauskas and others – should be distinguished. The collection is constantly supplemented with valuable exhibits.
