Desplans came about as a result of the observation that there is an ongoing production of high-quality, modern architectural drawings. These documents are not generally available to the general public, even though they represent a major art form.

Sketches, photographs, collages, plans, cross sections and models – they all reveal, not the finished architecture, but its abstract and stylised beginnings.

Desplans offers you the opportunity to buy these works of art as signed limited editions.

For Desplans, editing these architects’ works is another way of bringing architecture to life. We want to show what has never been shown before and bring architecture closer to the general public.

Founded in 2015, in Paris and Stockholm, Desplans today represents a community of around fifty of the most talented architects in the world of modern architecture.
