Sub-series 1

Extent and Medium

  • 2,465 colour slides (35mm)

Scope and Content

Sub-series contains colour slides produced and collected by the Foreign Office Architects. Material in this sub-series was produced between 1989 and 2010.

The sub-series has been divided into two groups - one group of slides that were labelled “private” when they were received, and one group that contains various architectural slides, including slides of international cities, buildings, and unidentified plans and models. This second group of architectural slides is largely unsorted and requires further investigation; some of these slides may have been used as teaching material.

Arrangement within the sub-series is by subject.

Note: Slides relating to specific projects by the Foreign Office Architects (images of models, drawings, built projects and exhibitions) can be found within their respective project files.
