The Architecture & Planning Library and the Alexander Architectural Archives are celebrating the anniversary of the University of Texas Education Building, now known as Sutton Hall, through the sixth installment of the "To Better Know a Building" exhibition series. The Alexander Architectural Archives is fortunate to have documentation for the building including construction drawings, construction photographs and project files from the University of Texas Buildings collection.

The exhibition series seeks to explore buildings through drawings and other visual items found in the Alexander Architectural Archives and Architecture & Planning Library with a focus on working drawings. Plans, elevations, sections and details communicate the realization of design intent and can be used as a vehicle in teaching through example. Opening remarks will be provided by The University of Texas at Austin School of Architecture Professor Richard Cleary. 

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through October 1.
