About Digital Archive of Newark Architecture


This Archive is an initiative undertaken by the NJIT to document  the built environment of Newark, New Jersey. This project is designed with the intent to improve public access to a variety of historic materials and to create a digital archive of past and present projects in Newark: old, new and renovated buildings, parks, planning and outdoor sculpture - anything of interest to the physical life of the city, its architecture, and its infrastructure.
The archive includes  plans of the city, architectural drawings, old photographs and postcards, rare books, articles in periodicals,  monographs, exhibition catalogues, student projects, as well as links to already existing online materials.

The initial phase of this project was made possible thanks to generous support of The Bay and Paul Foundations and The Leavens Foundation.
