Histories of each building from their conception, design, construction, and daily use are contained in drawings and documents utilized between clients, architects, and contractors to communicate ideas and information.

These records are documentation of an irretrievable past - the histories of buildings that have been demolished or never built; data that can facilitate preservation or adaptive reuse; resources that facilitate an understanding of our surroundings.

You will also find :
  • Blueprints
  • Sketches
  • Construction documents
  • Architects' letters

  • Models
  • Magazine articles
  • Board minutes
  • Videotapes
