ld this winter, have come to be regardedas the most important of the series. In a measure this is so,since New York is the center of the greatest architecturalactivity of the country; but the exhibitions in other citieshave, in the last few years, come forward into well earnedprominence, due partly to the exceeding care taken in theselection of exhibits, partly to the taste shown in their ar-rangement. New York can no longer boast the only archi-tectural exhibition, and since there are other active archi-tectural centers it is quite as well there should be exhibitionselsewhere. While it is true these exhibitions have taken on amore and more pictorial character, the great fact is that theyare held, and that laymen whose interest in buildings is ofa peculiarly personal and non-technical character, visit them.To get people to look at architectural drawings is the firststep toward getting them to understand them.
