University Collections on Architecture and Graphics as a Challenge for Research and Teaching

Making architectural and graphics collections at universities valuable as important study material - that is the topic of the colloquium on 15 and 16 March 2023 in Hanover, which will be discussed using the example of the indexing and digitization of the Albrecht Haupt Collection as part of the GESAH project.


The conference, which will take place in Hannover on 15 and 16 March 2023, is dedicated to architecture and graphics collections at universities. The focus will be on three different aspects:

  1. The historical genesis and purpose of these collections: Why and with what intention were these collections created?
  2. How are these historical collections used in today’s (architectural) teaching?
  3. What collaborative indexing procedures are currently practised and what experiences have been made with them?

The conference will take place within the context of the indexing and digitisation project “Graphische Einzelblätter der Sammlung Albrecht Haupt” (GESAH), funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG), which is being carried out by the TIB – Leibniz Information Centre for Sciences and Technology and the Chair of History of Building and Urban Planning at Leibniz Universität Hannover.

Please register for the conference by 6 March 2023 at the latest by emailing sekretariat@igt-arch.uni-hannover.de.
