  • Peopling Preservation: A Forum in Honor of the Fiftieth Anniversary of the
           National Historic Preservation Act of 1966
    • Abstract: The number fifty has special status in the historic preservation field. Cultural resources less than fifty years old are, in most cases, not eligible for listing on the National Register of Historic Places or for designation as National Historic Landmarks. There are, of course, exceptions—including sites associated with modern architecture and urban planning, the Cold War and the civil rights movement, and transformational individuals ranging from entertainer Elvis Presley to author and environmentalist Rachel Carson—that meet the test for “exceptional significance” even before the fiftieth anniversary of the events for which they are recognized.1 But generally, the evaluation of historic significance ...

  • “It’s Not the Location; It’s the Institution”: The New Politics of
           Historic Preservation within the Heritage Tourism Economy
    • Abstract: The local group used traditional preservation language and arguments to save their building, while the University of Chicago employed skewed marketing-speak to argue that they were saving an “institution” while knocking down that institution’s building. That this kind of spin won the day proves nothing except that money and power and influence will usually win the day. On the eve of the new millennium, South Side Chicago’s infamous Douglas and Grand Boulevard neighborhoods were putting on their fancy clothes. Newly built condominium developments and renovated hundred-year-old greystones slowly overshadowed vacant lots and run-down store-fronts. Under the larger heritage tourism banner of “Restoring ...

  • Preservation and Negotiation of History and Identity in Lexington,
           Kentucky
    • Abstract: I want modernism to emerge as a distinctive patterning of mental and technical possibilities. . . . “Modernity” means contingency. It points to a social order which has turned from the worship of ancestors and past authorities to the pursuit of a projected future—of goods, pleasures, freedoms, forms of control over nature, or infinities of information. This process goes along with a great emptying and sanitizing of the imagination. Without ancestor-worship, meaning is in short supply—“meaning” here meaning agreed-on and instituted forms of value and understanding, implicit orders, stories and images in which a culture crystallizes its sense of the struggle with the realm of necessity and the reality of pain and ...

  • Interiors, Histories, and the Preservation of Chicago’s Hull House
           Settlement
    • Abstract: In June 1967 the Jane Addams Hull-House Museum opened on the new University of Illinois campus in Chicago (Figure 1). Designed to commemorate Hull House founder Jane Addams, the museum was constructed from the remnants of the nationally renowned Hull House Settlement, which only six years earlier, in 1961, had spanned an entire city block on Chicago’s West Side.1 In contrast to the sprawling settlement, the museum included only two of the original thirteen structures: a mansion built in 1856 for Chicago real estate broker Charles Hull and a brick dining hall Jane Addams had built in 1906. Completely refaced with new brick, the exterior of the mansion was restored to approximate its 1856 appearance—that of an ... Read More

  • The Grid Comes Home: Wiring and Lighting the American Farmhouse
    • Abstract: On May 3, 1941, a group of Pennsylvania farm families gathered to celebrate what was termed the “Second Battle of Gettysburg”: the arrival of electric power in rural parts of the state. Among the day’s events was a mock funeral for a kerosene lantern. After the unfortunate lamp was laid to rest, a tombstone was placed at the burial site, which read: “Here lies a coal-oil lamp. Buried here . . . as a symbol of the drudgery and toil which its member-families bore far longer than was necessary or right but which, with the energization of their own power system are now abolished for all time” (Figure 1).1 Recalling President Lincoln’s eulogizing address at Gettysburg, this inscription suggested that rural ...

  • American Crossroads: General Motors’ Midcentury Campaign to Promote
           Modernist Urban Design in Hometown U.S.A
    • Abstract: By the 1940s the General Motors Corporation had acquired a popular reputation for visionary urban design. Best remembered today is the company’s collaboration with industrial designer Norman Bel Geddes to create the Futurama, an enormous mechanized diorama of the United States as it might appear in the not-too-distant future. This spectacular display of miniature landscapes, knit together with broad highways coursing with model automobiles, was the most popular exhibit of the 1939–40 New York World’s Fair.1 It was seen by millions of people and discussed by millions more, and it has been the focus of a number of thoughtful analyses, including Adnan Morshed’s recent book Impossible Heights and the 2012 ...

  • The Photographic Construction of Urban Renewal in Fargo, North Dakota
    • Abstract: The federally subsidized urban renewal program had its roots in three major federal housing acts, those of 1937, 1949, and 1954. The Housing Act of 1937 defined a slum as “any area where dwellings predominate which, by reason of dilapidation, overcrowding, faulty arrangement or design, lack of ventilation, light or sanitation facilities, or any combination of these factors, are detrimental to safety, health, or morals.”1 Responding to a call in President Harry S. Truman’s 1949 State of the Union address, Congress passed the Housing Act of 1949, Title I of which authorized the use of federal funds for what it termed slum clearance.2 The 1949 act defined an approach to identifying and rebuilding “blighted or ...

  • The Chesapeake House: Architectural Investigation by Colonial Williamsburg
           ed. by Cary Carson, Carl R. Lounsbury (review)
    • Abstract: Examining the nature of architecture and landscape in one East Coast region from colonial settlement to the early nineteenth century, The Chesapeake House, edited by Cary Carson and Carl R. Lounsbury, is an accessible and beautifully designed volume that presents the work of an interdisciplinary team of historians, archeologists, conservators, and curators working for the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation over the past two decades. Moving well beyond the original site of Williamsburg to survey other extant buildings across Maryland and eastern Virginia, their work yields insights into the development of a distinct regional architecture and culture over time, grounded in the deep analysis of a wide variety of ...

  • Hitler at Home by Despina Stratigakos (review)
    • Abstract: Hitler at Home is a very good book about a very evil man. Despina Stratigakos’s 383-page tome explores three dwellings renovated by German chancellor and leader of the Nazi party Adolf Hitler in the mid-1930s: the Old Chancellery in Berlin, an apartment in Munich, and the Berghof, a mountain retreat on the Obersalzberg in Bavaria. The argument of the book is that amid the international rise of celebrity culture and the house museum, domestic architecture served as a powerful tool of propaganda that shaped Hitler’s rise to power. The book is divided in two major parts. The five chapters in part 1 look at Hitler’s domestic architecture and the career of his chief designer, Gerdy Troost; the six ... Read More

  • Detached America: Building Houses in Postwar Suburbia by James A. Jacobs
           (review)
    • Abstract: Between 1945 and 1970, new housing types transformed the American city and suburbs. Millions and millions of “tract houses” constructed and designed by builders ringed the older urban cores. Nearly all were ranches, split-levels, or other new forms of two-story houses. Each was different from previous American houses in design and spatial arrangement. But because the new types have been thoroughly disliked for most of their history by cultural critics—and by architectural historians—we know astonishingly little about them. Only in the past few years have scholars turned sustained attention to the new houses and the neighborhoods of which they were a part.1 James A. Jacobs is one of the first to focus ... Read More

  • Houses for a New World: Builders and Buyers in American Suburbs,
           1945–1965 by Barbara Miller Lane (review)
    • Abstract: Houses for a New World makes a significant contribution to the growing corpus of scholarly literature focused on the post–World War II tract house and residential development on what was then the metropolitan periphery. This volume is not only the most detailed study to date but offers an abundance of fresh material and, most importantly, substantial new insights on the nature of a phenomenon that became an emblem of the American landscape and American life, one that still profoundly affects our routines and our outlooks. Barbara Miller Lane takes her subject in a largely positive light that is framed by voluminous research over a period of many years. Her perspective accords with that of a number of other ...

  • The Camaro in the Pasture: Speculations on the Cultural Landscape of
           America by Robert B. Riley (review)
    • Abstract: “The countryside just doesn’t look like countryside is supposed to anymore,” Robert Riley writes in the essay that gives this collection its name. “The tractor-tire garden out front is now an eight-year-old Camaro with a ‘for sale’ sign on it” (92). This unexpected new reality—Riley’s “machine in the garden”—prompts a broader inquiry into the contemporary rural landscape in transition.1 It used to be that people who lived on the land also earned a living from it. This old rural landscape played a stable role as both a physical place and an image of preindustrial wholesomeness in the spatial imaginary of the modern city. Today, however, much of the American countryside has shed its traditional associations ... Read More

  • SubUrbanisms: Casino Urbanization, Chinatowns, and the Contested American
           Landscape by Stephen Fan, and: Chinese Style: Rediscovering the
           Architecture of Poy Gum Lee, 1923–1968 by Kerri Culhane (review)
    • Abstract: With SubUrbanisms and Chinese Style, the Museum of Chinese in America has staked a broadened claim for the role of Asian immigrants—Chinese Americans in particular—in the production of metropolitan cultural landscapes beyond traditional Chinatowns. The museum, founded in 1980 and housed in lower Manhattan since 2009 in a greatly expanded space designed by Maya Lin, is an ideal location to examine the material in these concurrent exhibitions. The larger of the two shows, SubUrbanisms, invites the visitor to travel from crowded Mott and Canal Streets in Manhattan to the west bank of the Thames River in eastern Connecticut, where sits the Mohegan Sun, a megacasino resort. Dozens of buses travel to ... Read More

  • Re-Collecting Black Hawk: Landscape, Memory, and Power in the American
           Midwest ed. by Nicolas A. Brown, Sarah E. Kanouse (review)
    • Abstract: When I receive books in the mail, I tear open the packaging, check the cover, read the back jacket, and flip through the pages. I followed my usual practice upon the arrival of Re-Collecting Black Hawk: Landscapes, Memory, and Power in the American Midwest, a stunning and provocative image-and-text collection edited by Nicolas A. Brown, a professor of geography and American Indian and Native studies, and Sarah E. Kanouse, an artist. Rifling through, I accidentally landed on a black-and-white photograph of a street sign from Freeport, Illinois. Set against a dull gray sky, the sign demarcated the intersection of West Empire Street and South Blackhawk Avenue. I stared at it for a moment before closing the book ... Read More

  • Book for Architects by Wolfgang Tillmans (review)
    • Abstract: Enter a darkened room dominated by a large structure with its back to you. Climb a set of stacked benches to see a corner brightly lit by a changing pair of projected images, one on each wall. You see some familiar high-design architectural marvels as well as many ordinary anonymous places. Sometimes there are whole buildings, more often fragments: doorknobs, signs, satellite dishes. Everything is photographed like a snapshot rather than through the perfecting lens of the professional. Most of the sites depicted show their age, their wearing down, and their building up through use. As 450 photos flash by in a forty-one-minute video loop—approximately four pairs of pictures every two minutes—this installation ... Read More
