Description
This collection comprises five project workbooks documenting the preliminary planning of the University of California, Irvine campus by the architectural firm William L. Pereira and Associates. Pereira and Associates presented the workbooks to the University of California Regents in 1962 for final approval of the campus plan. The workbooks show the evolution of concepts for the campus's layout. They contain status reports, maps, schematic and architectural plans, and drawings.
Background
In the late 1950s, Architect William Pereira was hired by the University of California (UC) Regents to help identify a suitable site in the Southeast Los Angeles-Orange County area for the next UC campus. The site chosen was the 93,000 acre Irvine Ranch, 1,000 acres of which were dedicated to the new campus. Pereira was hired to be the master architect of both the UC Irvine (UCI) campus and the City of Irvine.
