This collection includes
correspondence, clippings, articles, typescripts, and photographs documenting architectural
styles worldwide taken mostly in the 1960's by the architectural historian and critic Sibyl
Moholy-Nagy. The images and articles relate to the history of architecture and were used to
support Sibyl Moholy-Nagy's teaching. The material is arranged alphabetically by
Moholy-Nagy's original code and subject divisions. Also included is an important group of
periodicals and documents pertaining to the Futurist Movement in Italy. Along with the
negatives of architectural subjects are 3 small collections of slides of Laszlo
Moholy-Nagy's artwork, and a separate group of black and white photographs of his artwork
from an exhibition in 1969.
