|About the museum:
This museum was founded in 1995 by means of an expansion of the activities of the department of architecture and urban design of the fine arts class of the Academy, the rich collection of archival records of which became the initial collection of the museum. The museum deals systematically with collecting, keeping and researching into relevant documents and data from the history of Croatian architecture. There is a special emphasis on the collection of material from the period of Modernism, i.e. from the end of the 19th century until today. Individual archival units look after the plans of many architects. Today the collection has about 18,000 individual archival items: plans, drawings, models, photos, slides, letters and other documents related to the history of Croatian architecture. All the material that the museum keeps is systematically computerised and available to all researchers. It has no permanent display, rather it organises ad hoc exhibitions in which the museum public is shown some of the holdings of the museum and the significant architectural work of individual authors or periods. It also deals with the presentation of contemporary work in architecture and with the development of a dialogue in the architecture profession by organisation thematic exhibitions, panel discussions and cultivating the publication activity.
