Collections

The archives of saai comprise more than 530,000 plans, drawings and sketches, 680,000 photographs, slides, negatives and audio and video tapes, 1,100 meters of files and records, about 900 models and 50 pieces of furniture, also monographs and periodicals

A smaller portion of the collection relates to specific projects, while the main part focuses on particular individuals; from the smallest notes to complete works. These give information about the work of about 250 architects, engineers, architectural historians, photographers, landscape and interior designers. The oldest document dates back to the 18th century, but the collection specializes on the 20th century, with a particular emphasis on its second half.

With a short biography, a repertory of the works or any literature, we can inform you on the individuals whose documents we keep. Please note : the choice of works might not be the same as our holdings. For more information, please contact us. It is our pleasure to help you. We are gradually updating the list of our collections at your disposal on our website. Basic informations about using the archive you'll find here.
