Architecture and the Illinois Tech Campus

Throughout Illinois Institute of Technology’s history, campus architecture and the College of Architecture have been closely linked. From the turn of the century brick Main Building to Mies van der Rohe’s modernist landmarks, campus plans have been shaped by the Architecture pedagogy and faculty, while the College has drawn inspiration and reputation from the campus.

Though University Archives and Special Collections is not the official repository for the papers of Mies van der Rohe, we do hold collections related to Mies’ built and planned campus buildings as well as documentation of his tenure at IIT. More extensive holdings include collections related to later campus plans and construction, including the Lohan Master Plan, Peter Lindsay Schaudt’s campus landscaping redesign, and the design contest that resulted in the construction of the McCormick Tribune Campus Center. Collections from the College of Architecture include promotional materials, documentation of symposia and exhibits, and administrative records. We hold plans, designs, and drawings related to many, but not all, campus buildings.
