| Jun 27, 2018
Since 2012, the SAH Blog has covered a variety of topics related to the history of the built environment. Articles have addressed issues concerning politics, preservation, and pedagogy, some have focused on the work of a specific architect or building types, and others have provided readers with useful resources. The blog has also housed the monthly reports of SAH's H. Allen Brooks Travelling Fellows as they document their journeys around the world.
