The Architecture collections support the research and information needs of the University of Miami School of Architecture communities at the undergraduate, graduate, post-graduate, and post-professional levels.
Architecture collections are housed in three locations; the Otto G. Richter Library, the Paul Buisson Architecture Library, and the Rome Library. The Paul Buisson Architecture Library maintains a circulating collection of the most recently published monographs in architecture, urban planning, landscape architecture, and design, and over 60 current, international architecture and design journals. Supplemental and archival materials are housed at the Otto G. Richter Library.
The architecture collections are a unique center for information about South Florida that reflect the School of Architecture’s emphasis on tropical, vernacular, landscape architecture, urban planning, historic preservation and the New Urbanism. Architecture collections are robust in the areas of Latin America, all periods of Italy with an emphasis on classical architecture and the architecture of the 20th Century. In addition, the Architecture Library houses a modest Special Collections, architectural archival collections, and the School of Architecture Archives.
