Creating Digital Access to the William Brumfield Russian Architecture Collection

The creation of an image and text database of 30,000 photographs made by William Brumfield, which represent 2,400 examples of Russian architecture of all types and periods.

Funding is sought for the completion of the William Brumfield Russian Architecture Digital Collection, to consist of 30,000 digitized photographs of notable Russian buildings from the middle ages to the present day, taken by Professor William Brumfield of Tulane University, the leading American authority on Russian architecture. The project will create an image and text database that will be the primary encyclopedic resource for the study of Russian architecture, preserving the wealth of visual information contained in this definitive collection of color slides and prints. The pilot site, developed in 2003 with access to c.1,200 photographs via a prototype interface, is available for viewing at http://depts.washington.edu/ceir/brumfield/.
