By Brooks Travelling Fellow Amber N. Wiley

I was not ready to leave Ghana. I had not yet visited Kumasi, walked the campus of KNUST, or seen the Asante traditional buildings that survived British destruction in 1874. I truncated my trip due to the pressures of the health epidemic in West Africa (although no cases of Ebola were reported in Ghana), and left a month to the day that I arrived. My purpose was to research architectural heritage and urbanism in Accra, Cape Coast, Kumasi, and (optimistically, if I had enough time) the Northern Region. As I began to meet people around Accra and describe my plans to do first-hand study of architecture in Ghana, I was often countered with the question “Why Ghana?

  • The University of Wisconsin, Madison libraries are pleased to announce the launch of a new digital project: The Dominy Craftsmen Collection.

    Dates: 11 Nov, 2014
    Three generations of the Dominy family of East Hampton, New York functioned as craftsmen from ca. 1760 to ca. 1850. Working in wood and metal, they produced clocks and furniture and repaired thousands of pocket watches. Direct descendants of the Dominy craftsmen kept together the shop equipment, tools, and manuscript material on their original site until 1946, thus preserving the only complete record of craftsmen working in colonial America and the New Republic. Much of this material is now relocated to the Winterthur Museum.

  • Frank Lloyd Wright's Walter Davidson House Tour

    Buffalo | Dates: 22 Nov, 2014
    This is the only time this year that the Davidson House will be open to the public! The Davidson House, built in 1908, was designed for Walter Davidson, who worked at the Larkin Company. The Davidson House reveals prairie style principles similar to those seen in the Darwin D. Martin House. The owner has graciously granted us access to this spectacular home for just one day. Master Docent Marla Bujnicki will guide visitors through the first floor of this private home as well as give an overall look at the history of the beautiful Parkside neighborhood.
