The Archive will acquire, document and retain any reproductions of significant architectural works that faculty members feel is of importance to add to the existing blueprint collection. This usually occurs when students are given Design Studio or Building Technology analysis projects. Arrangements can also be made for the donation, reproduction or purchase of blueprints, should a student have a request for a particular building not currently in the Archive’s holdings.
The office periodically receives queries regarding the possible donation of other materials to augment its holdings. Each offer is evaluated with regard to its relevance to the Archive’s existing collections and the physical restraints of the office. It is not possible for the Archive to accept every donation offered.
