Scope and content:
File documents an executed project for the Music School and History Museum in Stuttgart, Germany. The office of James Stirling, Michael Wilford, and Associates was initially appointed in 1986 to design the new Music School and Theatre Academy. In 1991, the programme was altered to include a new History Museum for the State of Baden-Württemberg in place of the Theatre Academy, while retaining the existing design. The project was also divided in two phases with the last phase including the planning and construction of the second part of the Music School and the History Museum. The project was completed after the death of Stirling in 1992 by the firms of Michael Wilford and Partners and Michael Wilford GmbH. Material in this file was produced between 1985 and 2000.

File contains several early conceptual drawings, a large number of design development drawings, as well as presentation drawings and working drawings. Photographic materials include views of the building site and of study and presentation models by Kandor Modelmakers and by photographer Peter Walser. File also contains a large amount of textual records and a presentation model of the concert hall.
