Help Save the Past for the Future
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 mission of the Archives -- to collect, preserve, and make available the documentation of the designed environment and those who created and/or documented it.
Financial support is also critical to ensure the continuing activities 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 and beyond, 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 nearly 200 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.
