  • "Until the Lord Come Get Me, It Burn Down, Or the Next Storm Blow It
           Away": The Aesthetics of Freedom in African American Vernacular Homestead
           Preservation
    • Abstract: From 1870 to 1920, former slaves founded more than 557 "freedom colonies" or freedmen's towns across the state of Texas.1 Since then, descendants dispersed to major cities within Texas and the western United States, leaving behind clustered settlements where structures associated with early African American place creation have almost disappeared. Surviving settlements in Newton and Jasper Counties show how descendants have mobilized out of a desire to sustain attachments to place and steward what remains of these communities. These activities reveal a fascinating case of diasporic identity and an in novative approach to homestead rehabilitation, decor, and tenancy, which exist at the intersection of intangible and ...

  • "Until the Lord Come Get Me, It Burn Down, Or the Next Storm Blow It Away"
           by Michael Osman (review)
    • Abstract: "This is not a history of enthusiastic people doing interesting things" writes Michael Osman in the preface to his excellent book Modernism's Visible Hand, Architecture and Regulation in America. This declaration, however, is misleading; the protagonists of Osman's book—engineers, entrepreneurs, scientists, industrialists, and architects—were doing very interesting things. Each in their own discipline, they all engaged with then- novel technologies and made these developments (and the epistemology underlying them) a part of their professional practice. The innovations they proposed, from heating and cooling mechanisms to systems of notation, were often mundane, but their impact was far-reaching. As such, they are ... Read More

  • Research Notes: Digital Documentation in Vernacular Architecture Studies
    • Abstract: The methodical investigation and documentation of buildings is at the heart of vernacular architecture fieldwork, providing intimate encounters with historic building fabric and deeper understandings of the past. From our field's inception, practitioners have painstakingly recorded buildings to preserve and interpret the historic built environment. Indeed, it is the rigors of fieldwork that distinguish our discipline's scholarship. By taking an "archaeological" or "forensic" approach to the study of buildings, we seek to chronicle how form, construction, and finish can provide insights into the dynamics of social change.1 Recognizing that architecture is a powerful medium to explore culture, we are obliged in our ...

  • Rehabbing Housing, Rehabbing People: West 114th Street and the Failed
           Promise of Housing Rehabilitation
    • Abstract: Dorothy Mangum and her family moved from 257 to 263 West 114th Street, on the same Harlem block, in May 1966. "The distance was short," explained a lushly illustrated book published by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) two years later. "But in the way of life about to be opened up, Mr. and Mrs. Mangum and their seven children had accomplished a leap in time." Two images told the tale (Figure 1). In one, a too-bright light blazed onto a dingy, unpeopled kitchen below. Floral curtains tried to dress the space up, but a cracked ceiling, with bulges suggesting water infiltration, dominated the picture. Below, a pile of pans implied the limited space available here. Electrical wiring strung ... Read More

  • Visualizing Community: Art, Material Culture, and Settlement in Byzantine
           Cappadocia by Robert G. Ousterhout (review)
    • Abstract: Richly illustrated and remarkable in its erudite yet accessible narrative, Visualizing Community is an impressive read. It will satisfy scholars and engage newcomers to Byzantine, and more specifically Cappadocian, studies. The numerous illustrations will transport the reader to the mesmerizing landscape of Byzantine Cappadocia, where hundreds of rock- cut structures create a vast assemblage of puzzling architecture and decoration often described as monastic, if not otherworldly, and steeped in religious mystery.

  • Viewpoint: Mi Casa or Su Casa: U.S. Influence on Domestic Architecture in
           Northern Honduras
    • Abstract: I have spent much of my professional career focusing on how and why buildings change, both individually and collectively. I have studied the introduction and adaptation of Georgian houses, the reworking of farm buildings to accommodate new production strategies, and the role of tourism in shaping what is preserved and what is not. Yet I admit to being somewhat oblivious to the role I play in influencing changes to the global built environment. Those in the design professions are aware that their plans determine the appearance of individual buildings and even larger communities. Anyone involved in official review processes, meanwhile, understands how government regulations and their interpretation affect ... Read More

  • A New Plantation World: Sporting Estates in the South Carolina Lowcountry,
           1900–1940 by Daniel J. Vivian (review)
    • Abstract: In A New Plantation World: Sporting Estates in the South Carolina Lowcountry, 1900–1940 Daniel J. Vivian undertakes the study of hunting estates and uses them as a wedge to analyze romantic ideas about plantation life in the South. His narrative of wealthy northerners who moved to the Lowcountry of South Carolina in pursuit of sport takes a fascinating turn when his analysis moves to the importance of the myth of the Old South as a place for leisure and gracious living. The removal of all evidence of the agricultural economy—its working landscapes, buildings, and enslaved people—obscures the history of the region. The twentieth-century owners who commissioned these physical transformations made claims of presenting ... Read More

  • The Cemeteries of New Orleans: A Cultural History by Peter B. Dedek
           (review)
    • Abstract: Anthropologists and historians have long recognized that the form and function of cemeteries reveal cultural values and practices. Historian and preservationist Peter Dedek's The Cemeteries of New Orleans: A Cultural History is an engaging contribution that sheds light on these topics. He argues that cemeteries are important "because of their educational value; their distinctive architecture, art, and landscapes; their role as active burial grounds and memorials to those interred there; and their unique aesthetics" (179). Many graveyard scholars will be familiar with some of the unusual attributes of New Orleans cemeteries (e.g., a focus on aboveground burials), but few will realize the varied contributions from ...

  • The Politics of Furniture: Identity, Diplomacy, and Persuasion in Post-War
           Interiors ed. by Fredie Floré and Cammie McAtee (review)
    • Abstract: The Politics of Furniture: Identity, Diplomacy, and Persuasion in Post-War Interiors is an important publication that engages an essential area of material culture with academic rigor and global perspective, opening a field of inquiry that has not received such concentrated attention before.1 Although midcentury modern furniture and interiors enjoy great popularity as a vintage style in the world of antiques, shelter magazines, and the consumer retail market, academics, including the readers of Buildings & Landscapes, have not engaged with the subject with quite the same fervor. Interiors and material culture remain a peripheral topic within architectural history and vernacular architecture. The most sophisticated ... Read More

  • Making Cities Global: The Transnational Turn in Urban History ed. by A. K.
           Sandoval-Strausz and Nancy H. Kwak (review)
    • Abstract: Well into the twenty-first century, how are we doing with our commitments to producing and sharing "truly global" urban histories' How might we better account for local built environment manifestations of metropolitan, regional, national, and international forces' In the face of ever-thickening layers of overlapping perspectives and portrayals, how is it possible to make sense of rising complexity and apparent contradictions' Andrew Sandoval-Strausz and Nancy Kwak have assembled formidable scholarship and commentary to help us sort through what remains a daunting undertaking.The reader's first task in taking up this volume is to read past the book cover and contents to uncover that, for the most part, the work ...

  • Learning from Shenzhen: China's Post-Mao Experiment from Special Zone to
           Model City ed. by Mary Ann O'Donnell, Winnie Wong and Jonathan Bach
           (review)
    • Abstract: Shenzhen is a well-known city among the Chinese, although it is not a city with thousands of years of history nor the seat of a provincial government. It is, however, one of the four commonly accepted tier-one cities in China, ranked only after Beijing and Shanghai. The city of Shenzhen and the Shenzhen Special Economic Zone (SEZ) were established in 1979 and 1980 respectively as test grounds for the reform and opening policy, which was much debated by the new generation of post- Mao Chinese leaders at the time. Compared to the other three SEZs established in China at the same time, the Shenzhen SEZ was unique because of its geographic and political position: it was the gateway to Hong Kong, which was under ...

  • Plans and Priorities: Multifamily Housing Types and French Canadian
           Builders in Northern New England, 1890–1950
    • Abstract: Edmond Violette, my great-grandfather, moved from a hardscrabble farm in rural New Brunswick to the small industrial city of Augusta, Maine, in 1919, drawn to work in the cotton mill of the Edwards Manufacturing Company. Over the next few decades he employed a number of strategies to occupy, and eventually alter, the built environment of his new hometown. His choices help to illustrate the motivations and complex accommodations many immigrants made in recasting their own housing to suit their needs. He and others like him effected a significant transformation of the vernacular urban landscape in the process.At first his story was a familiar one. Joined by his wife, Therese, and their thirteen children, the family ... Read More
