On exhibit: "Erich Mendelsohn: The Oregon Sketches" is now on display in A&AA Library, April-June 2014. In January 1953, architect Erich Mendelsohn lectured at the School of Architecture and Allied Arts and left as a gift a dozen sketches that he made during his visit. This is the first time these rare drawings have been exhibited. The display is pictured above. Left: Mendelsohn at an A&AA studio class, January 1953.

The Architecture and Allied Arts Library is a major center for art and architectural information in the Pacific Northwest. Occupying three floors of Lawrence Hall, the library's unique, sunlit spaces and seating arrangements provide a welcoming environment for its users. A hallmark of AAA Library is a two-story reading room named after Marion Dean Ross, whose bequest has enabled the development of a rich collection of rare architectural history books.

The A&AA Library's collections primarily support the diverse academic programs associated with the School of Architecture and Allied Arts.  Read more about the scope and content of A&AA Library's collections. Complementing this collection are large holdings of art and architecture titles in Knight Library and the UO Portland Library and Learning Commons. Important collections of architectural archives and drawings are housed in the UO Libraries' Special Collections & University Archives.

Renovation update: In April 2014, the library's added space on the third floor opened to the public. This space features a reading room, a student collaboration room, spaces for special collections and collection growth, and four more workstations.
