Architectural Archive

Over more than a decade spent in the documentation of modern architecture in Australia, Simon Reeves has compiled an extensive archive of primary and secondary research material.  This includes copies of memorabilia borrowed from architects and their families, such as drawings, photographs, correspondence, press clippings, etc.  The archive is supplemented by Simon's own correspondence and interviews with architects (many since deceased) as well as their associates, colleagues, clients and families. If you require more detailed information, please feel free to contact us for a quote.

Recently, material on loan from architects or their families has been digitally scanned to ensure its long-term preservation.  Amongst those whose careers are represented in this digital archive are James Earle, Robert Eggleston, Emily Gibson, Walter Burley Griffin, Anthony Hayden, Haydn Phillips, Brian O'Connor, Roy Prentice, Keith Reid, Muriel Stott and Wystan Widdows.  A full listing of those represented in the digital archive, and some of the individual documents included therein, is available here.

In addition, paper-based biographical files are maintained on these and many other local architects, architectural firms and landscape designers.  Click here for a list.
