Archival Adventures: Vera Jansone Architectural Collection

Archival Adventures: Vera Jansone Architectural Collection

It's time for an adventure! It’s time for an adventure! Destination: mid-20th century International Style and Mid-Century Modern architecture. This week we’re exploring the architectural designs of Latvian architect Vera Jansone. Jansone studied at the Ecole des Beaux Arts, then worked at the Atelier Le Corbusier, and later studied at the Illinois Institute of Technology under Mies van der Rohe before moving to California to find more opportunities for women in the field of architecture. You can learn more about the collection in the finding aid here: https://ead.lib.virginia.edu/vivaxtf/view?docId=oai/lib.vt.edu/repositories/2/resources/2160.oai_ead.xml

Join our community collections archivist, Anthony Wright de Hernandez, for a livestream on Twitch! Every week we explore and discuss materials from Special Collections and University Archives covering topics including university history, NASA pioneers, architecture, science fiction, cooking, LGBTQ+ history, Black history, urban legends, and more. Recordings of previous streams are available on the Libaries' Youtube page.
