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. These images can be viewed in the Slide Library during open hours.
Our digital image collection grows daily as staff archive and add new images selected by professors, critics or the student curators.
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. Current GSAPP students and faculty are permitted to borrow all VRC materials (including lecture videos) for presentations, study or other academic purposes.
