Scope and Content

This series contains papers and drawings related to Goldsmith's career with Skidmore, Owings & Merrill from 1955-83, and also his later work undertaken after retirement from the firm. The documents include office communications and reports, publicity about SOM, extensive client and project files (which include blueprints of Burnham & Root and Holabird & Roche office buildings), and Goldsmith's documentation files on projects, architects, and a wide range of other topics, some of which have a lot of information (bridges, stadium architecture). The drawings of various SOM projects and other work by Goldsmith include some original sketches and design development drawings, as well as five models of bridge proposals. Many of Goldsmith's later bridge designs (often with T.Y. Lin) are well represented, as well as large-scale projects like Central Place Development in Brisbane, Australia (Peddle, Thorpe & Harvey, architects), and the Hangkang City project (Goldsmith with Mahoub Elnimeiri and Alexander Baumgarten, architects).

Reference Number



This series has been arranged into three subseries, each one documenting a different location or phase of Goldsmith's work with Skidmore, Owings & Merrill.
