Houses for ArcE2803/ArcE3203

Places to Look

All the books mentioned in this guide are located at the service desk, on the first floor of the library. Just ask at the front desk and we will help you check them out.

Some (Key Houses of the Twentieth Century, etc.) come with CDs and CAD drawings. 

What about other houses?

First, Google the provided house name with the architect's last name to see if there are any common variants.

Next, look in the Key Houses of the Twentieth Century/Key Buildings of the Twentieth Century books. Check the indexes of each book for both the house name, architect's name, and common variants. For many of these, we'll also have the CAD drawings on the CD that comes with the book. Look in the index at the back of the book for a list of those houses that appear as files on the CD. 

For info on the architect, and to find house info if all else fails, do a keyword search on the architect's name in MERLIN; if you don't get good results, also try Summon.
