Series I. Writings, circa 1957-2006, undated

Physical Description: 9.4 Linear Feet (24 boxes)

Scope and Content Note

Yona Friedman's textual work-materials for books, articles, lectures and project proposals, both large and small-comprises Series I. This documentation, which spans the majority of Friedman's career, includes all stages of the writing process from notes and handwritten early drafts through typescripts, both earlier work produced on a typewriter and more recent material printed from a computer, to offprints of published articles. In many cases, these materials are represented or duplicated in the archive by photocopies, often in multiples.
The interwoven nature of Friedman's intellectual production and his goal of broadly spreading his ideas means that many of the individual entries below are closely related. The content of an article would be published in more than one journal with only minor changes, with an only slightly varying or even identical title, and would also be published in multiple languages. Articles would, in turn, be repackaged as sections of Friedman's books. This publication methodology is reflected in the physical characteristics of Friedman's manuscripts themselves. Works with images, and even some without, may be produced on tracing paper, presumably for reproduction. Typescripts are often assembled from cut-out sections of text and glued to backing sheets, and this technique reaches a further extent with composite manuscripts, where pieces of photocopied published works and typescripts, with linking sections of handwritten manuscript, are all combined on backing sheets to create a new work. Sections of text are reused and reassembled much like prefabricated modular elements. This method of textual construction also means that precisely dating Friedman's individual works can be difficult. A small number of Friedman's writings are dated on the manuscript and these are indicated below by a precise date with a month and day. For the majority of Friedman's writings, however, the year given below is a terminus ante quem determined by a publication or lecture date, or is derived from context. The titles of works presented in this series are taken directly from the piece with few exceptions, and occasionally retain quirks in spelling and grammar.
Although this series contains the bulk of Friedman's writing, manuals and other books that are primarily graphic in nature are to be found in Series II and exhibition catalogs are in Series IV.

Arrangement

The series is arranged in roughly chronological order, with undated and unidentified material at the end. Friedman's original associative arrangement can be traced by the "boîte" numbers in each entry. A search using the "find" command with one of those entries will retrieve the other materials originally housed in the same folder or box (see Arrangement and Processing History notes above).

Series II. Manuals and other graphic works, 1973-2006, undated

Physical Description: 11.9 Linear Feet (26 boxes)

Scope and Content Note

The production materials for Friedman's manuals and other graphic works form Series II. Beginning in 1973 with a commission to help schoolchildren learn about architecture, Friedman developed a distinctive graphic style to convey information, a form of bande dessinée or comic-strip, with minimal added text. Easily reproduced and capable of being understood by the quasi-literate, the manuals were translated into local languages and widely distributed in India, as well as Indonesia, Africa and South America. Friedman's initial self-help manuals focused on architecture and planning, but gradually their emphasis shifted to a larger array of economic, health, and quality of life topics, directed primarily toward a third-world audience. The shift in subject matter reflects a change in Friedman's intellectual interests and his growing involvement with United Nations programs, such as UNESCO and UNU, in the later 1970s. Although the purely didactic manuals ceased in the early 1990s as UNU funding for the project ended, Friedman continued to use this graphic style for other works, often book-length, such as Vous avez un chien and artists' books such as The "Trompe l'oeil" Universe.
Included here are original texts and drawings for manuals in various production stages, as well as multiple photocopies of completed manuals. The frequent use of tracing paper and the techniques of paste-up and overlay, similar to that seen with the manuscript material in Series I, as well as the frequent recombination of component elements, elucidate Friedman's working methods and his emphasis on the broad distribution of his work. As with the writings in Series I, the manuals are produced in multiple languages and the titles of works presented in this series are taken directly from the piece, occasionally retaining quirks in spelling and grammar. Of particular interest are a group of hand-colored drawings, which were part of a planned audio-visual version of the manuals. Friedman's other graphic works are represented by production materials with similar stages of text and images, as well as collages and photomontages.

Series V. Studies and visualizations for architectural and planning projects, 1958-2006

Physical Description: 20.8 Linear Feet (35 boxes, 9 flatfiles, 1 boxed roll)

Scope and Content Note

Friedman, especially in the last two decades, is perhaps best known for his eye-catching visualizations of his theoretical approaches to architecture and planning. Series V comprises studies, drawings and other primarily visual documentation of Friedman's projects. Notes, diagrams, original sketches and drawings, architectural plans, production stages of collages and photomontages, photographs of maquettes, as well as numerous photocopies of all these formats, some with further elaboration, form the series. The projects range from Friedman's early working out of the general principles of mobile architecture and the spatial city in the 1950s to work as recent as his 2005 design of a spatial city for Venice. Large full-color renderings of projects and Friedman's actual maquettes are not included in the archive.
Given Friedman's practice of revisiting and reviving projects throughout his career, the dating of the material in this series is problematic. For individual projects, the date given in parentheses represents an intellectual date for the project, or at least its first iteration. The actual images in the archive however are mostly undated and may be substantially later than the project date in some instances. When images are dated on the piece, that date will follow the project date.

Arrangement

The series is arranged in three sections. The materials in the underlying principles section represent the theoretical principles being developed by Friedman. The next section, individual projects, represents the application of these principles to specific problems, arranged in chronological order by project date. A final section of photocopied image compilations completes the series.
Friedman's original associative arrangement can be traced by the "boîte" numbers in each entry. A search using the "find" command with one of those entries will retrieve the other materials originally housed in the same folder or box (see Arrangement and Processing History notes above).

Series VI. Professional organizations, 1956-1997, undated

Physical Description: 7.9 Linear Feet (15 boxes, 1 flatfile, 1 boxed roll)

Scope and Content Note

Documentation of Friedman's association with various organizations comprises Series VI. Throughout Friedman's career, there has been a tension between wanting to operate within a larger professional context and his radical individuality. Friedman had limited involvement with large established groups such as CIAM or those in which he was not the main instigator, such as GIAP, which he described as "banal." Instead Friedman operated most comfortably in groups of his own creation. These organizations might be fairly large and international, like GEAM, or basically only himself with a collaborator, such as CCSK. The documentation of Friedman's involvement with these last two groups is of particular interest, as each typifies a phase in his career. Included in this documentation are numerous drafts of position statements, correspondence, offprints and photocopies of collaborators work, and financial documents.

Arrangement

The series is arranged by organization in roughly chronological order. Friedman's original associative arrangement can be traced by the "boîte" numbers in each entry. A search using the "find" command with one of those entries will retrieve the other materials originally housed in the same folder or box (see Arrangement and Processing History notes above).
