Why is your contribution important?
We are a private, non-profit foundation, funded entirely through our own activities, and by contributions from members and contributing institutions. Contributions are used exclusively to support the Foundation’s services for students, researchers, architects and the general public.
The Foundation’s principal activities revolve around the digital archive. We have succeeded in creating one of the most complete architectural archives available on the Internet today. Until the creation of our digital archive, access to this material was restricted while we searched for feasible ways to further our mission. We have always been aware of the need to promote the greatest possible dissemination of the rich cultural heritage that forms Alejandro de la Sota’s archive.
For this reason, and because we have always championed the idea of a living archive rather than a dormant one, we are launching an important project: All the contents of our digital archive will be fully accessible online! Furthermore, we will incorporate a tool for external collaborations: Users will be able to upload and share their own content related to Alejandro de la Sota’s life and work!
We here at the Foundation sincerely hope that you will find our enthusiasm contagious, and that you will be inspired to contribute to this ambitious project. Our digital archive will certainly be an important point of reference on the online architectural scene. Your help is very important to us!
