This paper focuses on the study of vernacular architecture’s drawings made by the 1925s Generation members during their education period at the Madrid School of Architecture. This study will let us analyse some graphic aspects (emphasis, represented elements, type of graphics, etc.) showing the interest of that group of teachers and students. They tried to defend popular architecture’s drawing as one way to modernize Spanish architecture and as a compromise with the architectonical reality of the country. In addition, they could reveal an unsuitable educative system according to the needs and artistic trends of that moment.
