I am not sure which the original question referred to, but I was talking about buying what you describe as artistic drawings.

In many cases, these are drawings of buildings not designed by the architect themselves, or done as an illustration. (e.g. many of John Piper's drawings and limited edition prints are of old churches, but if they were original designs for his stained-glass work, then they would indeed belong in a museum).

If it is the purchase of the actual technical/design drawings for a building, then I agree that it is a good idea to check it out (do architects ever sell these ?)
