Funding for SAH Archipedia
In 2014, the Society of Architectural Historians finished raising $150,000 to match a $300,000 grant
offer from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) to create new born-digital content for SAH Archipedia
. The $450,000 in funding has enabled SAH to hire project and media editors to work with more than 30 teams of authors who are writing building histories for the 100 most representative buildings in each of the states not yet included in SAH Archipedia
. When complete in mid-2015, the online educational resource will cover all 50 states and will form an authoritative, peer-reviewed online encyclopedia of American architecture.
has been designated a “We the People Project” by NEH for its role in encouraging and enhancing the teaching, study, and understanding of American history, culture, and democratic principles.
Additional funding was provided by the American Institute of Architects (AIA), the Graham Foundation for Advanced Study in the Fine Arts, and Two Cat Digital.
