Open access edition of SAH Archipedia goes live!

From a statement from the Society of Architectural Historians:

“In honor of the 243rd birthday of the United States on July 4, the Society of Architectural Historians and University of Virginia Press proudly make a gift to the Nation: the beta version of a newly designed, mobile-friendly, open-access edition of SAH Archipedia.

“We invite you to explore the rich history of more than 20,000 North American buildings, landscapes, and cultural landmarks. SAH Archipedia’s diversity of sites, new interpretations, and peer-reviewed scholarship make it a valuable online public resource for learning about more than 2,000 years of development in this part of the world.”

“SAH Archipedia is an authoritative online encyclopedia of the U.S. built environment organized by the Society of Architectural Historians and the University of Virginia Press. It contains histories, photographs, and maps for over 20,000 structures and places. These are mostly buildings, but as you explore SAH Archipedia you will also find landscapes, infrastructure, monuments, artwork, and more. This cross-section of the country demonstrates the richness and diversity of architecture and building practice across many centuries, from mud brick to steel, from ancient cliff dwellings to contemporary office towers—a history that unfolds in individual building entries and thematic essays written by leading architectural historians who survey and explain styles and typologies, materials and techniques, and social and political contexts, from local to state to national levels.” (Source: Archipedia website)
