SAHARA Highlights: Icons

by Jacqueline Spafford and Jeffrey Klee, SAHARA Co-Editors | May 12, 2017

In previous highlights from SAHARA, we’ve emphasized the breadth and depth of the collection to illustrate the diversity of interests of our contributors and to demonstrate the broad utility of its images to scholars around the world. This month, we’ve gone back to the canonical well to show what fine images are available for those teaching survey or introduction to architecture. This month’s selections include some very familiar sites. For some buildings, such as Fallingwater and the Maison Carrée, for example, there are abundant images, including interiors, landscape views, and many key details.
