Published by Project MUSE Homepage  [293 journals]
  • Editor's Note
    • Abstract: With this issue, Buildings & Landscapes is pleased to announce transitions in our editorial team. Cynthia G. Falk, Professor of Material Culture in the Cooperstown Graduate Program at SUNY-Oneonta, has served faithfully as an editor of the journal for the past five years. She has stepped down as part of the editorial rotation planned by the VAF Board. An ambitious scholar, Cindy has published two books: Architecture and Artifacts of the Pennsylvania Germans: Constructing Identity in Early America (Penn State, 2008) and Barns of New York: Rural Architecture of the Empire State (Cornell, 2013). Cindy has put many projects on hold to devote herself to the journal, and we know she will now take those up in earnest. ... Read More

  • Abbott Lowell Cummings, 1923–2017
    • Abstract: Abbott Lowell Cummings, the first president of the Vernacular Architecture Forum, died on May 29, 2017, in Elaine Center at Hadley, Massachusetts. He was ninety-four. Instrumental in guiding the VAF during its formative years, he was best known outside our organization as the leading authority on seventeenth- and early eighteenth-century First Period architecture in the American northeast. He will long be remembered as the author of The Framed Houses of Massachusetts Bay, 1625–1725, which won the Alice Davis Hitchcock Award from the Society of Architectural Historians.1 Scholar, preservationist, and educator, he had a profound influence on many VAF members and others in the field of early American architecture ...

  • "General Grant Isn't Coming Back": Local Economics, Politics, and Historic
           Preservation in Galena, Illinois, 1964–1981
    • Abstract: By the 1960s, the small city of Galena, Illinois, had acquired a reputation as "the town that time forgot."1 Visitors and residents alike were overwhelmed with the number of mid-nineteenth-century buildings that made up the place. Sandwiched between the Galena River and a steep hill, the downtown comprised several blocks of contiguous business buildings residents had taken to calling "the wall." As Main Street curved gently away from the river, those buildings created a canyon in which automobiles appeared to be the only twentieth-century interjection. Up the hill, picturesque churches and fashionable Victorian mansions capped the scene. Beyond the postcard view, large swaths of Galena were still composed of homes ... Read More

  • "This Is Ivy City": An Iconic Building's Role in Gentrification and
           Neighborhood Identity in Washington, D.C.
    • Abstract: In the neighborhood of Ivy City in the northeastern part of Washington, D.C., new businesses have adopted the hashtag #thisisivycity. The Nike store sells T-shirts with the slogan "We are Ivy City" overlaid on a map of the neighborhood. Planet Fitness, a national gym operator, displays a banner next door declaring "You Belong!"1 Both Nike and Planet Fitness opened in 2015 as anchor stores of the rehabilitated Hecht Company Warehouse, a seven-story building listed in the National Register of Historic Places, whose glimmering glass block façades and central tower dominate the neighborhood's built landscape. The interior of the Hecht Company Warehouse today has an industrial aesthetic, including exposed brick walls ... Read More

  • "Part of Who We Are": Using Old Buildings to Foster Citizenship in North
           Africa (Oran, Algeria, and Casablanca, Morocco)
    • Abstract: "Look at the gold leaf on that mosaic. Art Deco!" The man directs his followers' gaze up a white pillar supporting a now shabby shopping arcade in Oran, Algeria. Craning their necks, they see the gilded geometric decorations, redolent of the Jazz Age, as if for the first time (Figure 1). The enthusiastic volunteer guide and his intent listeners could be called foot soldiers in a movement growing today in many North African cities. Like historic preservationists elsewhere, they are eager to look at old buildings with discerning eyes. They are curious to learn new stories about the past. And they are citizens prepared to argue for the preservation of their built environment because it is "part of who we are."And yet ... Read More

  • Working the Delaware Estuary: African American Cultural Landscapes and the
           Contours of Environmental Experience
    • Abstract: When Frederick Douglass published his autobiography in 1845, he established himself as the country's leading African American intellectual and abolitionist leader. A careful reading of his pivotal account reveals the extent to which he used natural settings and built environments to not only explain the slave experience, but to also illuminate their capacity to inform human engagement with the world in ways both tangible and transcendent. Among the many striking issues contained in Douglass's autobiography are his significant references to working in the Chesapeake's estuarine environments, and his description of the marine cultural landscapes that fostered this labor experience.

  • City of Refuge: Separatists and Utopian Town Planning by Michael J. Lewis
           (review)
    • Abstract: Michael J. Lewis starts off using a wide-angle lens and ends with close-ups. He opens City of Refuge with abstract ideas about ideal cities as articulated in the Bible, explores efforts by early modern Europeans to map and build such cities, and zeroes in on specific religiously-based communities built by separatist Moravians and Rappites in Germany and the United States. There are side glances at other utopians from Thomas More to James Silk Buckingham.Before picking up the book, I wondered what would be new. There are plenty of books on utopian town schemes. John Reps treated the Rappites of Harmony and Economy and several Moravian settlements such as Salem, North Carolina, in his classic The Making of Urban ... Read More

  • California Mission Landscapes: Race, Memory, and the Politics of Heritage
           by Elizabeth Kryder-Reid (review)
    • Abstract: After glancing at the copious marginalia and yellow highlights that mark my copy of Elizabeth Kryder-Reid's California Mission Landscapes, it is not hard to understand why she recently won the 2017 John Brinckerhoff Jackson Book Prize from the Foundation for Landscape Studies. Readers of this journal, in particular, will appreciate how Kryder-Reid analyzes California's missions and, especially, their gardens as constructed landscapes that have led, and continue to lead, a vibrant social life—built and rebuilt, mediated and remediated, welcomed and damned, inherited and transmitted, timeless but always easily placed in history. They have traveled across time and space to shape and be shaped by a dynamic variety of ... Read More

  • Freedom and the Cage: Modern Architecture and Psychiatry in Central
           Europe, 1890–1914 by Leslie Topp (review)
    • Abstract: As the United States Congress debates government spending on health care, including funding for mental health services, it becomes increasingly obvious that we have not yet solved the problem of the asylum. Architecture-as-cure, once thought to be a reasonable approach and a beneficial use of government funding, has fallen out of favor, if not always for charitable reasons. How can a historical study of the structures built and used for centuries across the world to house the mentally ill shed light on the question' How can a deep-dive into the architectural features designed to ease the mind and provide care and solace to a vulnerable population help us understand our own responsibilities' These questions form the ...

  • National Park Roads: A Legacy in the American Landscape by Timothy Davis
           (review)
    • Abstract: In a memorable essay entitled "Roads Belong in the Landscape," J. B. Jackson famously reminds us that "odology" (the study of paths) is a noble pursuit.1 Jackson excelled in exploring the vernacular landscapes of the American highway, taking us on thoughtful journeys to truck stops, commercial strips, mobile home parks, and more. In a similar vein, Timothy Davis embraces the idea that roads matter a great deal when it comes to understanding the evolution of America's national parks. He also argues that many of the historical conflicts that emerged over road construction within parks offer larger insights into the complicated and contentious ways Americans have viewed nature. Thoroughly researched, well written, and ... Read More

  • Europe Meets America: William Lescaze, Architect of Modern Housing by Gaia
           Caramellino (review)
    • Abstract: Originally developed as a doctoral dissertation, Gaia Caramellino's exploration of William Lescaze's architectural legacy, particularly his designs of, public service work in, and critical writings on social housing, broadens our understanding of the transatlantic adaptations of modern architecture. Europe Meets America paints a detailed portrait of Lescaze from his immigration to the United States from Switzerland in 1920 through the later years of his New York architectural practice shortly before his death in 1969. Caramellino examines a wealth of archival materials associated with the architect "to provide an accurate portrayal of the complex and uncharted connections between architecture, politics, and social ...

  • Homeland: Zionism as Housing Regime, 1860–2011 by Yael Allweil
           (review)
    • Abstract: In the 1980s and 1990s the history of Zionism was opened up to new interpretations largely thanks to critiques of nationalism that had begun to circulate in the Israeli academy. Prior to that time, the history of Zionism was often narrated as the culmination of a millennia-long history of exodus and exile during which Jews sought to return to the ancient land of Israel. A dominant framework for reinterpreting the history of Zionism has been that of settler colonialism. Now, recent scholarship by architectural historians is moving to consider Zionism in architectural terms. After all, establishing a "national home" for the Jewish people also meant building—especially individual homes for the masses who immigrated to ... Read More

  • Easy On, Easy Off: The Urban Pathology of America's Small Towns by Jack
           Williams (review)
    • Abstract: Easy On, Easy Off: The Urban Pathology of America's Small Towns is essentially two books. One is a predictable polemic about the automobile's impact on the American landscape and the other a deeply considered work of historical geography and urban analysis. The former will undoubtedly appeal to followers of Jane Holtz Kay, William Howard Kunstler, and a long line of critics going back to Peter Blake and Lewis Mumford, but the latter should be of greater interest to scholars of vernacular architecture. Through an impressive combination of fieldwork, archival research, and well-integrated secondary sources, Williams reveals the history embedded in areas that are taken for granted or bypassed entirely by modern ...

  • Detroit Is No Dry Bones: The Eternal City of the Industrial Age by Camilo
           José Vergara (review)
    • Abstract: Camilo Vergara's greatest strength as an urbanist has always been devising systems to understand the city. Since the late 1970s, he has extensively photographed in Camden, New Jersey; Richmond, California; and in Chicago, Detroit, Gary, Los Angeles, and the boroughs of his hometown, New York. In books beginning with The New American Ghetto (1995), Vergara has sought ways to understand the struggles of the late twentieth-century U.S. city by arranging his photographs into thematic groups and through repeat photography, for which he was awarded a Mac Arthur Fellowship in 2002. In these sequences, Vergara photographs urban streetscapes from the same vantage point over decades, revealing the intense contraction of, and ... Read More

  • The Roots of Urban Renaissance: Gentrification and the Struggle over
           Harlem by Brian D. Goldstein (review)
    • Abstract: It is starting to seem as though the nineties killed the sixties rather than the eighties. Emerging scholarship on the so-called pragmatic compromises made by the left at the end of the millennium on many fronts, especially in our criminal justice system, is illuminating the creep of neoliberalism—and revealing that many of the central actors in this trajectory often felt themselves to be heirs to sixties idealism. Brian Goldstein's The Roots of Urban Renaissance contributes substantially to this emerging history. It is also a model for architectural and urban historians who seek to understand the complex relationship between our built environment and its social, political, and economic contexts.The book focuses on ...

  • All the Queens Houses by Rafael Herrin-Ferri (review)
    • Abstract: In 1981, New York Times architecture critic Paul Goldberger wrote a piece for his Design Notebook column about the traveling exhibition Transformed Houses. Curated by the Smithsonian Institution (no information was provided about specific individuals involved) and displayed at the Parsons School of Design in Manhattan, the exhibit highlighted the ways in which working-and lower-middle-class homeowners in northeast cities (e.g., Baltimore, Boston, Patterson, Pittsburgh, and the New York City boroughs of Brooklyn and Queens) modified the façades of their houses, mostly two-and three-story wood-frame row structures. Renovations included the use of asbestos and aluminum siding and the removal of original architectural ... Read More

  • Housekeeping by Design: Hotels and Labor by David Brody (review)
    • Abstract: Many cultural commentators and scholars have remarked on the transitional social status of staying in a hotel. Guests escape the mundane responsibilities of their own households to occupy a liminal space designed for comfort and ease. The labor that creates this comfort is expected to be invisible, particularly the "back of the house" work of cleaning and maintenance. Housekeeping by Design: Hotels and Labor by David Brody, an associate professor of design studies at Parsons School of Design, offers an ambitious study of how hotel interior design impacts the work of housekeeping. Brody states that he wants to expand the field of design studies to include not just industry professionals and their work, but the ... Read More

  • The Rule of Logistics: Walmart and the Architecture of Fulfillment by
           Jesse LeCavalier (review)
    • Abstract: The Walmart museum occupies a carefully restored three-story brick building directly across from the beautifully recreated town square in downtown Bentonville, Arkansas. It is an act of place-making that is as good as anything Walt Disney created in his own make-believe towns. Outside a reimagined soda fountain, street-side tables rest neatly on wide brick sidewalks, red-and-white awnings protect continuous storefront windows, ample on-street parking adds color and motion, and tasteful signage harkens back to a simpler time. These elements all work together to paint a picture of the idyllic American small town. But behind the façade is a rapacious corporation whose logistical practices have led to the decline of ...

  • Airport Urbanism: Infrastructure and Mobility in Asia by Max Hirsh
           (review)
    • Abstract: Airports are architecturally unlike other buildings because of their expansive footprints, their unique and complex programs, their visibility from so many directions, distances, and elevations, and their symbolic role as economic and technological civic statements. Airport exteriors are usually visually striking and photogenic, while their interiors often contain a glossy landscape of consumption replete with futuristic overtones. As a result, many books about airports have focused on these characteristics, either offering artful photographs of trophy architecture or exploring the design and planning of the walled micro-city within, and the implications thereof. Few authors or scholars have looked beyond the walls ... Read More
