The Macmillan Brown Library holds one of the largest collections of architectural drawings in New Zealand. The collection includes original drawings by B. W. Mountfort, W. B. Armson, Sir Miles Warren, Don Donnithorne, Peter Beaven, Paul Pascoe and other noted Canterbury architects. A large number of these are pen and ink and watercolours, and are considered works of art in their own right.
