New content has been published on SAH Archipedia! Explore South Dakota’s built environment through 100 entries written by state coordinator Michelle Dennis. In Multifamily Private Housing Since World War II, Matthew Gordon Lasner surveys four major typological trends in this dynamic arena of domestic architecture. Jennifer Reut reveals the architectural landscape of segregated travel in Black Travelers On and Off the Road, an essay focusing on travel guides published for African Americans from the 1930s through the 1960s.

SAH Archipedia’s teaching resources have also been expanded with the addition of two curriculum units (K-12): Reading a Building by Danielle Willkens and Through the Looking Glass: Transparency in Modern Architecture by Kevin Hofmann.
