Series I. Project records, 1972-1996, undated

Physical Description: 487.2 linear feet (199 boxes, 376 flatfiles, 17 boxed rolls)

Scope and Content Note

Materials relating to over 100 individual architectural and design projects, including new construction, additions, and remodels, both built and unbuilt, comprise Series I. These materials include drawings, general documentation, photographs and models. The drawings preserved in the archive consist of both originals and reproductions, and may include tissue sketches, plans, elevations, sections, construction and engineering details, plot and topographic plans, working sets, and some perspectival drawings and renderings. Many projects include extensive general documentation, consisting of construction files, contracts and billing, correspondence and notes, and some publicity files. Occasionally small drawings and sketches are found in these documentation files. Photographic documentation varies by project, primarily consisting of site images before, during, and after construction, in the form of negatives, slides, and both black-and-white and color prints. The architectural models in this series were an important part of Israel's design process. For an architect whose designs became more and more sculptural over the years, these models were a means of investigating the angular shapes of a building.
Project names are derived from drawings and publications. For each project, location and date are provided, when known. The dates listed are project dates derived from various sources, including construction files and dated drawings, and represent a combination of design and completion dates. Some projects may include earlier or later material representing the longer life of the structure, such as original site drawings for remodels. Project locations are in California unless otherwise noted. For some Los Angeles locations, a more precise neighborhood designation is given. For architectural drawings, the term "standard" refers to examples measuring from 30" x 40" to 37" x 49", with larger drawings indicated as "oversize." In some instances, very small drawings have been housed separately for better preservation and are noted in the finding aid as "small drawings."

Arrangement note

This series is arranged in chronological order by project date. Undated projects appear at the end of the series, along with unidentified projects.
