Subseries 1A: Conceptual Files, 1935-1997

This subseries contains photographs, negatives, transparencies, architectural drawings and reproductions, sketches, and calculations, along with occasional project files, notes, and correspondence regarding a wide range of Félix Candela's building and design projects. Files on specific building projects are organized into twelve conceptual categories based on a topic, generally a specific architectural feature or theme, following their original organizational logic.

Contents are mainly photographic in nature, accompanied by architectural drawings for some projects, and less often, paper files. Accordingly, materials in individual files are primarily photographic, unless otherwise noted at the file level.
