Félix Candela architectural records and papers, 1950-1984

Series II: Correspondence

As Candela developed his practice as a designer of concrete shells, he collaborated increasingly with architects on a global scale. As his reputation grew, Candela was frequently asked to lecture and teach at architecture schools around the world. Candela filed all his correspondence – business, personal, project-related, faculty, etc. – in an idiosyncratic system. He maintained several different filing systems for his correspondence and letters to and from the same person may be found in several folders. He established files labeled by project, date, location, and/or geography, all of which may overlap chronologically. The correspondence has been organized into four series with extensive notes on the correspondents where applicable. The notes should be used to find names of specific correspondents.
