Scope and content:
This series documents two projects by the firm Eva Vecsei Architect. In 1973, Vecsei opened her own private practice after her departure from the Dimitri Dimakopoulos’ firm, where she worked from 1971 to 1973.

In 1973, Vecsei was hired as an architect by Group Concordia Developers (GCD) to design La Cité, a high density mixed-use residential and commercial project in Milton Park, Montréal. The project was comprised of multifunctional complexes of residential units, offices, a shopping mall, and a hotel with a year-round outdoor pool. The project was realized by the architects Eva H. Vecsei and Dobush Stewart Longpré Marchand Goudreau. The project is also known as "Cité Concordia". The Place Bonaventure was also developed by GCD, where Vecsei was the head project designer from 1964 to 1967.

Besides these projects Eva Vecsei Architect also designed concepts for the city centre (1976) and a mixed-use complex (1978) in Karachi, Pakistan.

The bulk of the Eva Hollo Vecsei collection is arranged in this series and was produced between 1969 and 2008. Records are predominantly from 1974-1976, which correspond to the period of the La Cité project. Documenting La Cité are architectural records, such as presentation, design, and working drawings, as well as photographs, publications, slides, clippings, digital material (photographs), and a presentation document. This series also includes two clippings on the mixed-use complex in Karachi.
