Vector__Vault is a project that aims to increase the representation of diversity in architecture drawings, one vector at a time. We work towards diversifying architectural visualization by providing free creative commons vectors of underrepresented bodies. Populating architectural drawings with diverse bodies that accurately represent the diversity of our communities has the power to challenge social norms and empower designers to think, and design, differently.
Our content library is constantly growing so check back to see what’s new or contact us to let us know what you’d like to see next!
The vectors available on Vector__Vault are intended for student use. If you have questions about copyright or if you are interested in commercial use, please contact us.
Brynn works, writes, facilitates, and creates in the areas of sexuality, diversity, and health equity. She is a queer intersectional feminist with an interest in restorative justice and empathy, and a passion for photography.
Vic is a queer witch who believes in the power of community, collaboration, and anarchy. She designs, writes, and creates on the topics of co-living, feminism, and the abject. She believes in architecture as a tool for activism to create social change and is passionate about architectural drawings as a tool for design with a knack for worm’s eye axos. When not in the studio, she can be found baking bread.

Vector_Vault is volunteer-run. All of the work on this project is done out of a passion for social justice initiatives within the architecture field and a strong belief that this content should be free and accessible. If you would like to contribute, some of the ways that you could do that include: donate money (we rely on donations to keep the site running!), trace vectors to help grow the library, or model/pose for us and become a vector! Have other ideas or comments on the site? We'd love to hear from you.
