JSAH Celebrates SAH Archipedia with Virtual Issue

by SAH News | Oct 02, 2019
The Journal of the Society of Architectural Historians has published a special, virtual issue in celebration of the open-access launch of SAH Archipedia, an authoritative online encyclopedia of U.S. architecture developed by the Society of Architectural Historians in collaboration with the University of Virginia PressDrawn from SAH's award-winning Buildings of the United States series, SAH Archipedia contains building histories, images, maps, and peer-reviewed essays for over 20,000 U.S. structures from all 50 states. The site is searchable by state, building material, style, century, architect, and building type. This important resource, formerly available only to SAH members and institutional subscribers, is now freely available to anyone interested in learning more about the history of U.S. architecture and landscapes.

To mark the occasion, this virtual issue features previously published JSAH essays on several key building types found across the country, many of them evolving since colonial times, all of them prominent parts of our present-day built environments. While the articles present specific case studies, the reviews concern more general overviews of particular types. For a limited time, we are pleased to present these essays free of charge. 


Founded in 1940, the Society of Architectural Historians is an international nonprofit membership organization that promotes the study, interpretation and conservation of architecture, design, landscapes and urbanism worldwide. SAH serves a network of local, national and international institutions and individuals who, by profession or interest, focus on the built environment and its role in shaping contemporary life. SAH promotes meaningful public engagement with the history of the built environment through advocacy efforts, print and online publications, and local, national and international programs.

SAH thanks The Richard H. Driehaus Foundation
for its operating support.
