There are files and drawings for projects related to the development of Calgary, especially downtown, including projects both realized (the Clarence block; Lancaster building and the Plus15 pedestrian walkway system) and unrealized (Calgary Civic Centre and Stephen Square, for which there is an architectural model in the collection). Other architecture projects are varied and include work done in China, Canada, the United States, his own home in Calgary and an extensive amount on the Kleiner residence in Bragg Creek, his last architecture project. There is a large collection of material related to Frank Lloyd Wright and Hanen’s Taliesin experiences. Winter Cities Association files include a nearly complete set of publications, conference and workshop material. Harold Hanen developed theories of planning, public space, community development, pedestrian movement and seasonal responsiveness in architecture which were not always realized in built form, but many building, planning, writings and reference files contain reflections on these theories in the form of articles, handwritten notes, photographs, slides and newsclippings. He was also involved in the development of the Plus 15 system and wrote on its history and cultural potential. There is a small amount of personal material including the proceeding from his lawsuit against the City of Calgary. Arranged into fourteen series: Personal and Family; Awards and Recognition; Community Involvement; Frank Lloyd Wright; Writings and Correspondence; Promotional Material; Plus 15 Pedestrian Walkway; Climatic Adaptability and Planning; Winter Cities Association; Building Projects; Planning Projects; Drawings; and Reference Material, including texts, slides and photographs and books.
