Guide to the J. Paul Getty Museum, Getty Villa Construction Records, 1960, 1964, 1968-1986 and undated (bulk 1971-1974)
Series II. Reports, 1968-1974 2.1 linear feet (5 boxes)
Series II.C. Reports from architects and consultants, 1970-1974 0.63 linear feet (2 boxes)
The records consist of reports, with some accompanying memoranda, correspondence, articles, clippings, and notes, dating 1970-1974, that were created by Langdon & Wilson and various contractors to record the progress of the construction of the Villa Museum. The reports were sent to Getty, Norris Bramlett, and Stephen Garrett. Some of the reports record the construction status and responses to specific construction questions.
The majority of the reports were written by Langdon & Wilson, who produced the "Specifications for Construction of the J. Paul Getty Museum" in December 1970 and followed up with a series of Bulletins that served as amendments or supplements to the original document. The first report details the original construction specifications while the Bulletins describe later revisions and additions.
