    ABSTRACT

    141 Kodachrome slides and a videotape documenting the construciton of Engineering Building Unit II on the UCSD campus. The building was designed by the architectural firm Zimmer, Gunsul, Frasca Partnership. Ground-breaking occurred in August 1992 and the project was completed in July 1994. During the course of the project, two images of the construction site were photographed at different times each week from the northeast corner of the seventh floor of Engineering Building Unit I. The slides were subsequently reformatted to 3/4 inch videotape (which appears very jumpy if played at high speed).
