The project archives was founded within the Fondazione Angelo Masieri in 1987 and has been actively engaged in researching, acquiring, organising and publishing architecture archives ever since. It has increased its collections constantly for more than twenty years and has become an international reference point on the techniques for organising and, especially, for describing this sort of archives. The project archives is directed primarily at Iuav students and professors, but also serves outside researchers, professionals, museums and publishing houses.


online catalogue

The main research tool is the project archives’ online catalogue, which supplies all of the information on the archives’ collections, drawings, documents, photographs, models and instruments, often accompanied by reproductions. The catalogue makes it possible to do research at every level, be it in the various archives themselves or through other databases consultable in the university’s library and documentary system.
