Pen and Ink sketches of historical buildings

Zehra Naqavi, Architect/artist from Pakistan, has held two solo exhibitions of pen and ink sketches (Alliance Francaise in 1996, National Art Gallery in 1997) becoming the first and the only Architect of Pakistan to revive the fast-fading art of pen and ink (especially in Architecture) and to create an awareness about preservation, restoration and conservation of our historical buildings.
