Washington State Slept Here: SAH Archipedia and the Question of Significance

Feb 11, 2015 | By J. Philip Gruen


A couple of months ago I was asked what seemed, to me, an interesting question. As many readers of this blog likely know, SAH is well on its way to completing the first major stage of its SAH Archipedia project, SAH Archipedia Classic Buildings, where all fifty states will feature online entries of its 100 most “representative” buildings. I’ve signed on, along with my former student and now-colleague Robert Franklin, to co-coordinate the SAH Archipedia project for the state of Washington. Hardly claiming to be authorities on the architecture of the state—we chose to marshal several scholars, preservation consultants, professors, graduate students, and even the state architectural historian to help draft most of the entries rather than attempting to do all of them ourselves.

  • SMALL BUILDINGS: built, unbuilt, unbuildable

    St. Louis | Dates: 13 Mar – 10 May, 2015
    Architects today don’t build buildings, they make drawings and models. Similarly, a number of contemporary artists make works resembling architectural models, both in terms of scale and concept, while other artists working with site-specific installation make literal models of projects subsequently built. This exhibition will explore the craft of the architectural model through three themes: built, unbuilt, unbuildable, from the book of the same title by Robert Harbison.
