The EDRA and TEAG Collections

The Environmental Design Research Association (EDRA) Collection is a special collection of books that have been carefully collected for research purposes since 1968 and are housed in the Architecture Research Center. EDRA is an international, interdisciplinary organization founded in 1968 by design professionals, social and behavioral scientists, students, educators, and environmental managers. The purpose of EDRA is to advance the art and science of environmental design research, to improve understanding of the interrelationships between people and their built environment along with the natural surroundings, and to help create environments responsive to human needs.
The Environmental Analysis Group (TEAG) Collection is part of the EDRA Collection. These books are highly valued for their uniqueness to the study of architecture, design, and its symbiotic relationship with environmental psychology.

The ARC is responsible for the annual EDRA book display, which has become the most sought-out location during the international conference. The display is one of the most comprehensive in the discipline of environmental behavior as it relates to architecture and design. The ARC also publishes the annual EDRA Bibliography at the time of the conference. The EDRA Collection is also now available on the Web.
