  • “Order, Convenience, and Beauty”: The Style, Space, and Multiple
           Narratives of San Felipe Courts
    • Abstract: One of the few original drawings of the San Felipe Courts housing development (1939–1942; 1943–1944) depicts a dynamic and streamlined vision of urban life (Figure 1). The image is kinetic, from the smooth, subtle arc of the Buffalo Bayou Parkway to the repetitious, rhythmic superblocks of San Felipe Courts. The drafts-person, “D. Davis,” likely a member of the Associated Housing Architects of Houston, positioned the sun low on the horizon, and the trees cast long, outstretched shadows toward the left of the frame. The cars along the parkway appear to move in swift, singular motion. The formal features of San Felipe Courts, combined with the stylistic aspects of Davis’s rendering, communicate a sense of motion ... Read More

  • The Log Cabin: An American Icon by Alison K. Hoagland (review)
    • Abstract: Before we take a tour of Alison K. Hoagland’s The Log Cabin: An American Icon, let’s take a tour around where I live in northeast Ohio. Warren, the Trumbull County seat, boasts a reconstructed log cabin on the site of an 1804 schoolhouse and across the street from the formidably Richardsonian Romanesque revival courthouse (1897) in the square. In Mahoning County to the south, an 1816 log cabin is protected in Youngstown’s Mill Creek Park, established in 1891. The structure was originally built by Cambden Cleveland and purchased for $40.00 in 1863 by physician Timothy Woodbridge, who had it moved by oxcart to its present location. There he lived and practiced medicine until his death in 1893.These log cabins stand ... Read More

  • An Interview with Richard Longstreth
    • Abstract: Historians of the built environment record physical places with an eye toward capturing the experiences of others. Yet they sometimes neglect the responsibility to document their own history. As the Vernacular Architecture Forum approached its four-decade mark, the organization recognized the need to record the accounts of its early members with an oral history project begun in 2018. The project is only the beginning of an evolving process to collect and preserve the memories, printed materials, and other VAF-related documents of the early years of the organization’s history since its founding in 1979–80.The VAF teamed up with the Cooperstown Graduate Program (CGP), a master’s program in museum studies offered by ...

  • Ruins of Jamestown
    • Abstract: In 2007 the United States observed the 400th anniversary of the settlement of Jamestown, Virginia, the first permanent English colony in North America (Figure 1). Over a decade of planning and an impressive array of resources were invested in commemorating Jamestown’s 400th, and hundreds of thousands of visitors descended on the site of the colony’s first capital during that anniversary year. It was also a year of public reckoning about the role race played in the country’s first permanent English settlement. Ever since the Civil War, people writing about American history had been wary of Jamestown’s legacy, questioning the character and motivations of the “cavaliers” who had come to Virginia in 1607 and linking ...

  • Historic Capital: Preservation, Race, and Real Estate in Washington, D.C.
           by Cameron Logan (review)
    • Abstract: Ann Pamela Cunningham and the Mount Vernon Ladies’ Association; the creative restoration of Colonial Williamsburg; the demolition of Pennsylvania Station. These are some of the watershed moments in the history of historic preservation in the United States. What Cameron Logan offers in Historic Capital is not an alternative narrative, but a deeper context from which we can continue to interrogate the metanarrative of historic preservation in the United States.Curiously, the roots of preservation in Washington are quite distinct from the patriotism and urge to construct and secure the stories of the nation’s forefathers underlying Mount Vernon and Williamsburg, in spite of the position of Washington, D.C., in the ...

  • The Construction of Equality: Syriac Immigration and the Swedish City by
           Jennifer Mack (review)
    • Abstract: In The Construction of Equality: Syriac Immigration and the Swedish City, Jennifer Mack looks at the spatial practices of the Syriac community in Södertälje—a Swedish industrial city located at the outskirts of Stockholm—and how its diasporic engagement in architecture and urban design has contributed to changing the face of the city.1 In response to the increasingly dystopian vision of the growing multicultural areas in contemporary Sweden, Mack emphasizes the everyday actions of a community in matters of decoration and urban design as a means of expressing its identity.Combining an ethnographic method with historical reflections and considerations of design in the built environment, Mack revisits a series of ...

  • Architecture RePerformed: The Politics of Reconstruction ed. by Tino Mager
           (review)
    • Abstract: Architecture RePerformed: The Politics of Reconstruction presents a selection of eight essays concerning international case studies of recent architectural and urban reconstruction processes, including both Western and Eastern cultural experiences. These texts are briefly introduced by the editor, Tino Mager, an art and architectural historian. The aim of the book is explicit and amply anticipated by the title, which highlights the editor’s central focus on the overall political matrix of reconstruction processes, regardless of the cultural framework they are set into. The introduction and the conclusion of each essay offer a range of possible reasons for the wide success that the reconstruction of built heritage ... Read More

  • Pennsylvania Farming: A History in Landscapes by Sally McMurry (review)
    • Abstract: Sally McMurry, a seasoned fieldworker and researcher, has crafted a book that treats the cultural and architectural legacy of agriculture in a single state, but which represents a scholarly work of national significance for its insights into the interplay between agricultural method, architectural landscape, and broader societal currents. Pennsylvania is not just any state when it comes to farm history. Early on, the “best poor man’s country” was America’s most voluminous producer of foodstuffs, exporting great quantities of wheat flour to feed the populations of the British Isles, the Iberian peninsula, the sea-board towns of New England, and the islands of the Caribbean. Colonial-era Pennsylvania farmers of ... Read More

  • “First of All”: The Founding of Alpha Phi Alpha and the Search for
           Fraternal Space at Cornell University, 1905–1920
    • Abstract: White fraternity culture played a significant role in shaping Cornell University’s campus landscape and student life from the institution’s opening year in 1868 through the first quarter of the twentieth century. The presence of numerous fraternity residences on and adjacent to the Ithaca, New York, campus points to the enormous popularity of white male Greek life at many American colleges and universities during this era.1 Despite professed aims of brotherhood, these fraternities excluded African American students from membership. Faced with this racial discrimination, a small group of African American students at Cornell formed their own organization. On October 30, 1906, this group first met for a special ... Read More

  • American Catholics and the Church of Tomorrow: Building Churches for the
           Future, 1925–1975 by Catherine R. Osborne (review)
    • Abstract: In the spring of 1963, the artist and critic Maurice Lavanoux, a founder of the Catholic Liturgical Arts Society (1928–1972) and long-time editor of the society’s journal Liturgical Arts, visited the Princeton School of Architecture in order to comment on the most recent student theses. One project, designed by William Sims, consisted of plans for a lunar colony, notably including a chapel. Fascinated and energized by this futuristic idea, Lavanoux collaborated with architect Mark Mills to produce detailed drawings of a proposed “Chapel on the Moon, 2000 AD” for a special issue of his journal that appeared four years later. Mills’ inverted-funnel-shaped chapel, set into a visual scheme for an entire underground ... Read More

  • Colonizing, Decolonizing, and Globalizing Kolkata: From a Colonial to a
           Post-Marxist City by Siddhartha Sen (review)
    • Abstract: The bulk of Calcutta/Kolkata’s urban history in the twentieth century was written by sociologists, anthropologists, and amateur historians.1 Architectural historians found little of significance in Calcutta; a handful of the city’s mansions and public buildings were pressed into the service of generating larger narratives of Indian architecture and urbanism.2 Even in the early 1990s, there was only one published plan of a Calcutta building: Government House. The city’s vernacular architectural history was entirely ignored, except for studies that dealt with the city’s slums. This state of affairs has changed in the last two decades as scholars have undertaken rigorous field and archival research and expanded the ... Read More

  • No Simple Dwelling: Design, Politics, and the Mid-Twentieth-Century
           American Economy House
    • Abstract: In the 1940s and early 1950s, the American home-building industry embarked on a period of intensive design and production experimentation to generate homes for an important new market: the nation’s lower-middle-class and prosperous working-class wage earners. The focus of its work was what builders termed “economy houses,” or modest, single-family homes within the financial reach of the average office clerk or skilled laborer. Well-known examples of builders’ economy houses from the period include the capes of Levittown, New York, and the ranch houses of Lakewood, California. But thousands more economy-housing developments and economy-housing models blanketed the nation’s urban fringes in the mid-twentieth century. ... Read More

  • Palazzos of Power: Central Stations of the Philadelphia Electric Company,
           1900–1930 by Aaron Wunsch, Joseph E. B. Elliott (review)
    • Abstract: From the turn of the twentieth century until the Depression, rapidly evolving power generation technology and an exploding demand for electrical service forced American cities to establish and expand their utility infrastructure, in the process determining the role of those utilities in the landscape. In Palazzos of Power, Aaron Wunsch’s essay accompanied by Joseph E. B. Elliott’s photos of these grandly ruinous plants in early twenty-first-century decline presents a focused case study on how Philadelphia responded to the challenge. Wunsch argues that the power stations constructed by the Philadelphia Electric Company (PECO) used the language of the City Beautiful movement to ally their private character with the ... Read More
