    The AdamsMorioka Archives Vault, named for the donors of the first major grant toward the preservation of the institution’s archives, are invaluable to AIGA members and design scholars. Including works from 1914 to the present, the vault's artifacts document the organization’s extensive history and association with the century’s most influential designers. The archives complement the online AIGA Design Archives, documenting selections from AIGA design competitions. Artifacts from the competitions are housed in the Denver Art Museum’s Hamilton building, designed by architect Daniel Libeskind.

    Open by appointment only. Access is a benefit of AIGA membership and is also made available to nonmembers whose focused research into the history of AIGA, the profession or design may be assisted by this resource. To schedule a visit or for questions about the collection, email Heather Strelecki or call 212 710 3145. Appointments must be confirmed at least 24 hours in advance. AIGA is closed on weekends, national holidays, and during its national design conference in October.
