The College of Architecture and Planning Guest Lecture Series collection contains digitized audio and video recordings and of lectures held at the Ball State University College of Architecture and Planning since its founding in the 1960s. The collection also contains digitized promotional materials promoting the lecture series.
The college has a history of fostering a vibrant guest lecture series that brings numerous architects, landscape architects, designers, urban planners, and preservationists to speak to the students and faculty. Some of the important design professionals reflected in the collection are Louis Kahn, Nathaniel Owings, Dan Kiley, Evans Woollen, Ewing Miller, and Balthazar Korab. Most of the early lectures were recorded onto audiocassette tapes which have been digitally enhanced for optimal listening. Depending on circumstances during the original recording, the quality of the audio recordings can vary.
