Explore Oregon's history through its built environment.
Building Oregon: Architecture of Oregon and the Pacific Northwest
provides over 14,000 images and documentation about the architectural
heritage of the Pacific Northwest with special emphasis on Oregon*s
In collaboration with the Oregon State Historic Preservation Office,
many images in the collection represent works listed on the National
Register of Historic Places. A significant number of images come from
collections donated to the University of Oregon Libraries over the
years, including the collection of architectural historian Marion Dean
Browse & Search features are available and throughout the collection.
Pre-defined browsing is available in these categories: object name,
creator, object type, and location (city, county, state). Use the
advanced search features to construct complex searches employing any of
the fields that describe the work, such as object name, creator, type of
work, location (state, city, county), decade, and style.
Using the Images
The images and their associated documentation are provided to
facilitate research, instruction, and personal study. Because the images
come from different sources, conditions of use might vary. The Rights
field on the image record identifies permitted uses.
Substantial support for this collection comes from the bequest of Lisa
Gillett, a graduate of the University of Oregon School of Architecture
and Allied Arts. The Architecture Foundation of Oregon and the Marion
Dean Ross/Pacific Northwest Chapter of the Society of Architectural
Historians have also contributed to the development of this project.
Content from the Oregon State Historic Preservation Office has enriched
the scope and value of this resource. Christine L. Sundt, the Visual
Resources Curator, UO Libraries, 1985-2005, collected, preserved, and
made accessible the majority of the slides that constitute the source of
this digital collection. Those who have researched and documented these
important works over many decades deserve the most appreciation.
Questions and comments may be emailed to the project director, Edward
H. Teague, Head, Architecture & Allied Arts Library, University of
Oregon. The project is a collaborative effort with the AAA Library and
Metadata and Digital Services Projects, departments of the University of
