The McConnel Drawings Collection.
Initially funded from a donation by McConnel,Smith and Johnson in memory of Kenneth McConnel, the collection now has 240 drawings dating back to the 1920s. The collection is based on student works and has two objectives - an archive for scholarly purposes and a teaching resource for future generations.

There are three main areas of work we wish to profile - artwork relating to architecture from the University's art collection, current student and staff work and the historical drawings from the McConnel Collection.

Thesis / Advanced Study Report
This collection represents an invaluable body of work produced over years by students of the Faculty. Subjects areas covered are Architecture, Urban Design, Architectural and Design Science, Heritage Conservation and Urban and Regional Planning. The theses range from undergraduate to post-graduate levels and date back to the 1960s. Theses may not be removed from the centre, photocopying of short extracts is available at a small fee.


Scanners for images and slides, a photographic copy stand (ie. photos/slides from books, images), slide projectors, tape/slide players and a video monitor are available for use within the centre.
