This survey treats architectural pictorial sketches from Vitruvius to 20th century. According to pictorial sketches, we can't have no rigorous definition because there were various types of pictorial sketches before their definition by projection method was made. So to understand the usage of these sketches, we have to look into various drawings historically. The conclusion is following. 1) Perspective method after Renaissance is an important one, because it simulates human perceptions as the imitating image of a retina one. 2) Axonometric drawings can represent architecture objectively setting a fixed view point free. So this method can be seen as a simulation of our recognition. 3) But we can't understand the change from perspectives to axonometric drawings as an evolutionary one. Because we can see various types of pictorial sketches after the Middle Ages, where we can find various devices such as Villard de Honnecourt's sketches or Du Cerseau's ones.
