The Peter Eisenman archive at the CCA documents all of Eisenman’s activities as an architect, teacher, and author in over 60,000 drawings, prints, models, and photographs, and 170 linear feet of records documenting more than 200 projects covering his practice from 1960 to 2007. In addition to conceptual drawings in his own hand, the archive holds hundreds of design development models and thousands of born-digital, computer-aided drawings.

The following projects are particularly well represented in the fonds: Wexner Center for the Visual Arts, Columbus, Ohio; House X, Bloomfield Hills, Michigan; Biocentrum, Frankfurt am Main, West Germany (now Germany); University Art Museum, Long Beach, California; Guardiola House, Cádiz, Spain; Aronoff Center for Design and Art, University of Cincinnati, Ohio; Banyoles Olympic Hotel, Banyoles, Spain; Atoch 123 Hotel, Madrid, Spain; Rebstockpark Master Plan, Frankfurt am Main, Germany; Greater Columbus Convention Center, Columbus, Ohio; and Center for the Arts, Emory University, Atlanta, Georgia.

Related archival holdings include the entire IAUS archive, which contains the complete archive of the journal Oppositions, and the Anyone Corporation archive, comprising over 4,300 photographs and non-print materials (video and audio recordings, electronic documents, and ephemera) dating from 1990 to 2001, including the records of ANY magazine.

CCA began assembling the Peter Eisenman fonds in 1987. Before their transfer to CCA the records were stored at Peter Eisenman’s office at 41 West 25th Street, New York and at a warehouse in Brooklyn.
