Archival description area
Records donated to WAF by the Osaka family, December 2018. Unclear origin of copies of other firms, originals of architect Dennis Carter’s academic projects.
Scope and content
Collection includes architectural drawings created by Stan Osaka in the course of his career, including his independent career and during the course of his work as a partner at IKOY; reports written by Osaka on space allocation at the University of Manitoba; and records of Osaka’s work history. Copies of drawings from local firms, presumably received in connection to renovation projects Osaka worked on, are also found in this collection. This collection also includes originals of the academic projects of architect Dennis Carter.
Mostly good condition, with some discoloured rolls. Many edges of rolls have minor tears.
Immediate source of acquisition
Andrew Kawahara (on behalf of the estate of Stan Osaka)
