Sketches were not required since much architecture was envisioned by the Church who retained the templates of construction allowing only minor variations. These master builders were viewed as agents of God governed by the traditions of their guilds. In the years preceding the fifteenth century, these generations of craftsmen found little need to sketch and any sketches and drawings were inclined to consist of documents copying existing solutions. The few sketches that do exist appear minimal, diagrammatic, consisting of plan and elevation, and most likely were used for details or to communicate accepted construction methods.
The nineteenth century and early twentieth century movements in architecture expand to various parts of the world including parts of Asia and North America. Many of these sketches demonstrate the political, economic, and social climate of the world. The media had not changed remarkably but their manifestation was dramatically varied by individual architect, especially considering the ideological and polemical movements of the era. Modern architecture expanded into the International Style and, as the name implies, spread around the world with numerous cultural variations.
