    David Macaulay: The Art of Drawing Architecture at the National Building Museum, the first retrospective devoted to the work of architect-turned-illustrator David Macaulay, may be the last of its kind. The types of artistic, handmade sketches created by the 60-year-old Mr. Macaulay are becoming obsolete as a younger generation of architects increasingly relies on computer-aided drafting, or CAD, to draw and design — and in the process loses architecture's most basic creative skill: doodling as a way of pondering space. Mr. Macaulay's gee-whiz dissections of domes, minarets, bridges and entire cities clearly captures the sense of discovery that comes with sketching. Much of the liveliness of these ink drawings would be lost if they had been sanitized on the computer. 401 F St. NW. 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday-Saturday, 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Sunday. Through Jan. 21. Free. 202/272-2448.
