The School of Architecture (SoA) Student Work Archive contains studio and thesis projects from the 1920s to the present.
Between the 1920s and 1980, undergraduate and graduate students documented studio and thesis projects by submitting hand-illustrated 30"x40" (or larger) boards to the School. These projects reflect the shifting pedagogical focus of Princeton Architecture faculty, including Jean Labatut, Neville Epstein, Robert Geddes, Alan Chimacoff, and Michael Graves. The archive also provides a window onto the development of Modern architecture more broadly, as it features early work of key 20th century American architects such as Charles Moore, Hugh Hardy, and Robert Venturi. Most of these early MFA thesis and studio projects have recently been digitized thanks to the generous support of the David A. Gardner '69 Fund in the Humanities Council.
