Walter Hood: Redefining the Public Realm

The production of finding aids, disk images, and collection-level bibliographic records for the Walter Hood Collection, comprising 20 cartons of manuscript materials, 14 architectural project models, 250 compact disks (CDs), seven zip drives, and four oversize drawers housing project drawings.

The Regents of the University of California on behalf of the Environmental Design Archives at the University of California at Berkeley seek funding to preserve and make accessible significant source materials generated by urban designer Walter Hood (records 1995-2014). The field of urban design encompasses architecture, landscape architecture, and city and regional planning, and is concerned with the shaping of populated spaces. Disciplines like the Humanities, are only now beginning to understand and recognize Urban Design's approach to the built environment and its value and impact on society. While archival repositories have long been collecting architect’s records and more recently landscape architects records, there are few archival collections of significance in this emerging area of urban design.
