  1. The John Reps Collection contains over 1,340 personal photographs, plans, and aerial images of urban areas and forms, taken and gathered by Emeritus Professor John W. Reps from over 15 countries around the world from 1958 onwards.

    From American shopping malls to Finnish New Towns, the collected images address a wide range of topics and trends relevant to the planner or historian with an interest in comparative international or domestic spatial development. The images included document both private and public responses to challenges related to new town planning, housing, transportation, mixed use development, historic preservation and reconstruction, and downtown redevelopment.
