Visual Resources Center
The Environmental Design Archives welcomes support in all forms. Donations of original written, visual, and audio material created by architects, landscape architects, and architectural photographers are essential to the continuing role of the Archives -- to collect, preserve, and make available the documentation of buildings and landscapes and those who created them. Financial support is also critical to ensure the scope, quality, and services of the Archives.
The Environmental Design Archives of the College of Environmental Design is committed to raising awareness of the significant design heritage of Northern California through the primary records of the built and landscaped environment. The Archives houses drawings, plans, specifications, photographs, audio tapes, personal papers, business records, furniture, art, and artifacts. Most of the San Francisco Bay Region’s historically significant architects, and landscape architects nationally and internationally, are represented in more than 100 collections. The Environmental Design Archives provides primary source material for scholarly research, teaching support, architectural uses, preservation, publications, exhibitions, and public service; and actively encourages and promotes the use of its collections.
