Guide to the Collections


The International Archive of Women in Architecture (IAWA) was established in 1985 as a joint program of the College of Architecture and Urban Studies and the University Libraries at Virginia Tech. The purpose of the collection is to document the history of women's involvement in architecture by acquiring, preserving, storing, and making available to researchers the professional papers of women architects, landscape architects, designers, architectural historians and critics, urban planners, and the records of women's architectural organizations, from around the world. The IAWA collects the papers of those who practiced at a time when there were few women in the field (i.e., before the 1950s). The IAWA collects this information to fill serious gaps in the availability of primary research materials for architectural, women's, and social history research. Finding aids to IAWA archival collections are listed in an Online Inventory.

The IAWA also collects books, accessible through ADDISON the library's online catalog, biographical information, in the Biographical Database and published materials as part of its mission to act as a clearinghouse of information about all women architects, past and present. Patrons wishing to see these materials should consult the IAWA archivist, or access the online resources available here and at /iawa/.

Highlights: Recent Aquisition Big Little Knob. Student Life of Frank Lloyd Wright Woman Architect Nobuko Tsuchiura, donated by Japanese architects Atsko Tanaka and Nobuko Ogawa. Notable collections include the papers of Lois Gottlieb of San Francisco, a residential designer and author; Helene Koller-Buchwieser of Vienna, Austria, many of which detail reconstruction following World War II; the papers of Sigrid Lorenzen Rupp, a German born architect who practiced in Palo Alto, California; the papers of Han Schroeder, a Dutch architect and Professor of Interior Design at the New York Institute of Technology and Virginia Commonwealth University; the papers of Zelma Wilson, a Fellow of the American Institute of Architects and an architect in Ojai, California; the papers of Liane Zimbler, the first registered women architect of Austria and later an interior designer in Los Angeles, California; the papers of Louise Hall, long-time member of the North Carolina Chapter of the AIA who taught architecture at Duke from 1931-1975 and mentored many architects and scholars; the papers of Beverly Willis, artist, craftswoman, designer, and nationally recognized San Francisco architect; and the papers of Elsa Leviseur who practiced and taught in such diverse places as South Africa, California, and England.
