This collection comprises architectural
drawings, plans, renderings, and blueprints used in the construction of the University of
California, Irvine campus and College of Medicine from primarily 1963-1976. Materials
include black and white and color images and are in both paper and tissue paper formats. The
collection includes plans for major campus buildings such as academic units, campus support
facilities, and student housing as well as plans for campus layout and infrastructure,
including landscaping, roads, and utility systems.
In December 1963, ground was broken for the first major buildings on the University of
California, Irvine campus, and in January 1964, construction began. The initial structures
that were included in the first Long Range Development Plan included Library-Administration,
Commons, Humanities-Social Science, Fine Arts, Natural Sciences and Science Lecture Hall,
Central Plant, Campus Hall (later Crawford Hall), and Mesa Court. Architectural plans for
most of these structures are included in this collection.
