Student Work Documentation
Archive Submission Guidelines
Each semester, faculty select work from all design studios and some project-based courses for inclusion in the Archive’s Student Work Collection. If your work has been selected, you will be notified by the Archive. Your models and hand drawings will be photographed by Archive staff at the close of the fall and spring semesters.
You will be asked to submit your work according to specific guidelines, available here as a downloadable PDF.
Purchasing Archive Photos
Please note that students may purchase photographs taken by the archive of their work for $5 per image. To purchase images of your work, contact Chris Dierks.
Caring for Work During the Academic Year
• Keep drawings flat in a portfolio. If they are too large, roll and store them in tubes. Use a
sheet of paper rolled and taped around the outside to hold the roll together. Make sure to
remove any tape on the back of your drawings before storing them.
• Refrain from sticking masking tape to drawings, as it tends to discolor and leave a sticky
residue. If you need to use masking tape to hang work, remove it promptly. We recommend
that you use archival artist tape instead.
• If your drawing tears or gets damaged, consult with Archive for the best way to repair it.
• Keep sketches, study models, etc. so that you can track your process for each project.
• The Paul Laux Digital Architecture Studio has photo equipment that you may use to
document your work for your portfolio.
