A majority of projects were designed for the United States, Germany, and Japan. Other project locations include Spain, Italy, France, the Netherlands, Austria, Canada, Switzerland, Kuwait, Belgium, South Korea, Australia, and China. Material in this series was produced between 1925 and 2007.
Series contains competition drawings, conceptual and design development drawings, publication and presentation drawings and panels, reference drawings, and working drawings. It also contains photographic materials, textual records, models and artefacts. Series is roughly arranged chronologically by project date.
