Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
This collection contains standard and oversized photographs and renderings of the buildings, layout, and surrounding area of University of California, Irvine. Included are a chalk drawing and a watercolor painting of the Centrum and an ink drawing of the Fine Arts village, neither of which were built. Also included is an aerial painting of UCI, centered on Alrich Park, featuring the six schools built around Ring Road. The photographs include aerial views of campus and the surrounding area, shots of individual buildings, and images depicting students and campus life. A considerable number of photographs feature the UCI Medical School. One folder of photographs depict Frank Gehry's Engineering and Computer Science building before its demolition and replacement.
Some of the photos in this collection were donated by Robert Virscik, who was a construction supervisor for several of the early buildings at UCI. The photographs of the original Computer Science and Engineering Building were donated by the Assistant Dean Ron Hubbard shortly before the building was due to be demolished and replaced. This building was designed by Frank Gehry, a world-renown architect known for structures such as the Walt Disney Concern Hall. The rest of the collection was accrued from other unidentified, undated sources.
