The Collection

Images

The 35mm slide collection covers faculty research interests, images used in history courses, work presented by guest lecturers, and a survey of world architectural history from antiquity to the present day. In addition to 35mm and digital formats, the VRC owns a unique collection of antique lantern slides. Created using a technology that is no longer supported, the high-resolution lantern slides often present spaces and views that are the oldest and or completely unique surviving record of past places.

Video

All GSAPP Evening lectures, including many prominent and distinguished practitioners and theorists, are recorded and available for student and faculty use. The VRC offers a range of conferences, films, animations, and related subject matter dating back to 1989 on both VHS and DVD formats.
