Artstor and the School of Architecture at the University of Texas at Austin have collaborated to share more than 5,700 images from the Hal Box and Logan Wagner Collection of Mexican Architecture and Urban Design. This collection richly documents outdoor communal spaces in Mexico, including Pre-Columbian sites, as well as buildings and public spaces from the 16th through 20th centuries.

Hal Box, a practicing architect, studied and documented the 16th to 17th century open air churches of Mexico under the auspices of Earthwatch, with additional funding from the Graham Foundation, the University Research Institute, and the University of Texas Institute for Latin American Studies. Logan Wagner, a native of Mexico and an architect-builder with degrees in anthropology, architecture, and a Ph.D. in Latin American Studies, led the field work for twelve summers. Box, Wagner, and volunteer groups carried out photographic documentation of open air churches and other civic spaces in the states of Morelos, Mexico, Michoacán, Yucatan, Quinatna Roo, and Hidalgo.
