About Avery Drawings & Archives

Avery Library’s Drawings & Archives department collects and stewards drawings, photographs, and architectural records documenting the practice of architecture and the process of design. Our collections represent over 900 creators (architects, designers, and firms) across approximately 400 archives, which focus largely on American and New York City architecture of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Avery Drawings & Archives is among the most extensive research archives for architecture and design, and it serves as an important educational resource for Columbia University, Barnard College, and the wider international architecture and design community. The department’s largest collection is the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation Archives. Jointly acquired with The Museum of Modern Art in 2012, the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation Archives is among the most comprehensive archives of an American architect in the nation.
