This spring we formally launch the Voorsanger Architects Digital Archive with and exhibition in the O'Shaughnessy Educational Center (OEC) Lobby Gallery. To better understand the process involved in preserving the work of Voorsanger Architects, we will bring together the principal founder of the firm, Bartholomew Voorsanger, with architectural historians Dell Upton of the University of California at Los Angeles and Victoria Young of St. Thomas, to consider how we are preserving the importance of Voorsanger Architects' work in the history of architecture worldwide.
In August 2015, the University of St. Thomas Department of Art History and Bartholomew Voorsanger, founder and principal of Voorsanger Architects PC, entered into an agreement to create an archive of selected projects by the New York City-based firm. The archive will consist not only of born-digital material in an online database, a website, and oral histories, but also physical objects including models, photographs, publications, and sketchbooks.
