International Archive of Women In Architecture
International Archive of Women in Architecture (IAWA), located
in Newman Library at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State
University, Blacksburg, Virginia, is a joint program of the
College of Architecture and Urban Studies and the University
Libraries. The purpose of the IAWA is to document womens
involvement in architecture and design.
IAWA collects, preserves, stores and makes accessible selected
papers, materials and artifacts of women architects, landscape
architects, designers, urban planners, architectural historians,
patrons, teachers, photographers, writers, critics and others
whose life and work relate to women in architecture and design.
Books, biographical information and published materials supplement
the collection and support its function as a clearinghouse
and research center for information about women in architecture
and design, past and present.
