SAH Archipedia: Wisconsin Entries Added

by SAH News | Feb 09, 2017

We are happy to announce the addition of 774 entries covering the state of Wisconsin to SAH Archipedia, with 100 of these accessible via SAH Archipedia Classic Buildings.

This material comprises the full text of the just-released Buildings of Wisconsin by Marsha Weisiger and a team of authors—including Jeff Dean, Jim Draeger, Geoffrey M. Gyrisco, Paul J. Jakubovich, William Philpott, Les Vollmert, and Tracy Will—with contributions by Arnold R. Alanen, Timothy Bawden, Robert Birmingham, H. Allen Brooks, William Cronon, Todd DeBruin, Michael P.Douglass, Katie Franks, Timothy F. Heggland, Paul R. Lusignan, Elizabeth L. Miller, Robert Ostergren, Martin C. Perkins, Charles J. Quagliana, William H. Tishler, Carole Zellie, and the Wisconsin Historical Society. The building entries, along with fourteen overview essays drawn from the volume's introduction, are enlivened by photographs provided principally by the Wisconsin Historical Society, with additional illustrations to be added in the months to come.

This volume showcases noteworthy and representative sites across the state's six major regions and seventy-two counties, surveys a range of building types and styles from the vernacular to the spectacular, highlights Wisconsin's contributions to innovative modern design, and illustrates the many ways in which architecture embodies the social, economic, and environmental history of its communities.
