Scope and Content Note

The Henry Sanoff Papers contain student research project notebooks developed for a course where NCSU students attempted to create strategies for dealing with the planning problems unique to small rural communities.

These projects have been described in a book published in 2003 by the School of Architecture at the NCSU College of Design, "Three Decades of Design and Community" by Henry Sanoff. The Special Collections Research Center has a copy of this book.

Biographical/Historical Note

The Community Development Group, originally a course entitled "Model Cities Workshop," was created in 1969 to provide 5th year architecture students with a valuable real world collaborative experience. The students worked with local governmment, diverse rural populations and with the North Carolina Extension Service to develop plans and strategies of development for rural communities. The Senior Design Center (SDC) was created in 1994 to provide Computer Science seniors with a value-added capstone course resulting in a final project. The SDC provides an opportunity for companies to sponsor a particular project, resulting in a collaboration between students and private enterprise.

Dr. Henry Sanoff, AIA, Distinguished Professor of Architecture at the School of Architecture at the College of Design, earned his B.A. in Architecture in 1957 and M.A. in Architecture in 1962 from the Pratt Institute in New York. He came to the NCSU School of Design in 1966. He taught courses relating to community participation, social architecture, design research, design methodology, and design programming. Sanoff has lectured around the world and in the United States at more than 85 institutions. He is widely published and has been a visiting scholar at a number of institutions around the world. Sanoff has also worked as an architectural consultant in the programming and design of children's centers.
