On March 23, 1965, Ball State University's College of Architecture and Planning (CAP) opened its doors. At the time, the college had just four faculty members, offered a single undergraduate program in architecture, and was housed in a converted naval reserve armory made up of three connected quonset huts.

From that modest beginning, CAP has grown into an internationally respected interdisciplinary college with 700 students, more than 50 faculty members, and numerous degree programs with projects and centers around the globe.
This exhibit, featuring selected materials from the Ball State University Archives and the Drawings and Documents Archive, celebrates CAP's 40th Anniversary. On display are several photographs, brochures, publications, and other items documenting CAP's 40 year commitment to designing the future.
