Considered one of the world’s premier architectural illustrators, Paul Stevenson Oles FAIA has worked as independent architect, professor, author, and illustrator in the Boston area for over 40 years. This fall, BSA Space hosts a comprehensive exhibition featuring selections from the best drawings of Oles’s 50-year career, highlighting the legacy and value of hand drawing in a digital age. Although a majority of Oles’s work was commissioned by the New York firm I.M. Pei & Partners, the exhibition features numerous examples of drawings done for Boston-area firms such as Cambridge Seven Associates, The Architects Collaborative, Safdie Architects, Jung/Brannen Associates, Childs Bertman Tseckares, and Schwartz/Silver Architects. Drawings of Boston’s Moakley Federal Courthouse, the Washington National Cathedral and Maya Lin’s Vietnam Veterans Memorial are included in the show.
