Content and structure elements

Scope and content

The Architecture Faculty Oral History Project is a series of interviews with faculty from the University of Miami School of Architecture. These oral histories serve a fundamental purpose in capturing and preserving the individual memories of the faculty. The project began with informal conversations to assess how the library could best address their scholarly support needs. The interview process revealed critical yet untold stories about the history and pedagogical evolution of the School of Architecture. An ongoing project, the faculty oral histories documented here provide the scaffolding for narrating the school's pedagogical trajectories from the mid-century to the present.
