  • Viewpoint: Fieldwork, Mind, and Building
    • Abstract: Opposition has been central to the mythology of vernacular architecture studies in North America since the 1970s—most emphatically, opposition to scholarly practices that emphasize elite buildings and academically trained architects.1The rhetoric of revolution appears in much late twentieth-century work on ordinary buildings, in which resistance came to define the contours of its scholarship as effectively as any set of shared assumptions about the built environment.2 This generation of scholars critiqued perspectives that seemed too narrow in outlook, too focused on the powerful, and above all, too elitist. According to Henry Glassie, “the goal of history must not be the chronicle of the outré, the obvious, and ... Read More

  • Object Lesson: Monuments and Memory in Charlottesville
    • Abstract: “There had been plenty of rumors all the evening through that a mob was gathering.” As the dark of night fell, hundreds, “many having masks over their faces,” marched through the streets of Charlottesville. Packed in close formation, the torch-lit masked throng marched up Second Street and then turned right on High, proceeding two more blocks to their destination: the north yard of the Albemarle County Courthouse. There they grew in numbers, eventually collecting “hundreds . . . at every corner in all directions,” all fueled by “a spirit of riot.” Although eerily familiar, this was not the summer of 2017, but exactly one century before.1In the spring of 1917, Hampton Crosby and Richard Jones, both black, had been ...

  • Object Lesson: A Mission among the Navajo: The Vicar, an Architect, and
           Unforeseen Ghosts
    • Abstract: In 1917 Rudolf Otto wrote in The Idea of the Holy of the ephemeral idea of the ghostly. He claimed that the ghostly as well as tangible forms of architecture are both equally powerful means of expressing the numinous. Yet Otto asserted that ghosts have no place in our modern scheme of reality, despite the fact that the idea of the ghost arouses an irrepressible interest for the human mind. What is perceptibly true, Otto stated, is that our fear of ghosts is related in a far stronger sense to our fear of the “daemonic” experience itself, rather than to the sacred.1 Otto’s interest in yet disavowal of the reality of ghosts is an ironic backdrop for the investigation this essay makes of the Chapel of the Good Shepherd ...

  • Beyond the American Foursquare: The Square House in Period Perspective
    • Abstract: When the Indianapolis Star published images of notable new houses in the early decades of the twentieth century, the square house received faint praise. Bungalows were described as romantic and exotic. The colonial revival style was portrayed as offering prospective owners an affordable, stately image recalling a simpler time in America’s past. Meanwhile an attractive square house illustrated in the newspaper in 1910 was described as “architecturally . . . not distinctive, being a modification of the popular square type of residence.”1 Though never receiving the critical acclaim of the more modish styles of the day, the square house nonetheless became the workhorse of middle-class domesticity even as it eluded ...

  • Restyling the Postwar Prefab: The National Homes Corporation’s
           Revolution in Home Merchandising
    • Abstract: In 1946, long before he would win a Pulitzer Prize for his editorials on the U.S. involvement in Vietnam, Robert Lasch made an exciting prediction to the readers of Popular Science: “The day is at hand when the American family can go shopping for a house just as it shops for a car or refrigerator. Prefabrication, after fifteen years of false starts and experiment, is about to come into its own.”1 During the housing crisis of the 1930s, and again during the building boom of the post-war years, designs for a prefabricated house offering “better living” for American families that could be built cheaper and faster than conventional construction fascinated the architectural field and drew attention in popular magazines ...

  • Research Notes: Understanding the Physical Poetry of a Parallel American
           Dream
    • Abstract: Anne Spencer (1882–1975) was an African Ameri can high school librarian in Lynchburg, Virginia, who became nationally known, if not by her own choosing, as a poet of the Harlem Renaissance during the 1920s. The 1903 house Anne built with her husband Edward is now a National Register property and Virginia Landmark house museum, known principally for its personal and eclectic interior and flower garden, which evolved over a sixty-two-year period. This essay considers how to interpret this remarkable yet little-known historic site, which represents an artistic and architectural creation that is inextricably based on, and exhibits, the ephemeral characteristics of flowers and poetry.Fieldwork at the Anne and Edward ...

  • Slavery in the City: Architecture and Landscapes of Urban Slavery in North
           America ed. by Clifton Ellis, Rebecca Ginsburg (review)
    • Abstract: Atlantic and American historians have sought to unravel slavery’s monolithic narratives since the dawn of social history studies a generation ago. But rarely do researchers investigate the institution in an urban context beyond a handful of major southern cities. A slim new volume from University of Virginia Press, Slavery in the City: Architecture and Landscapes of Urban Slavery in North America, offers compelling evidence that the lives of enslaved Africans and African Americans in places other than Richmond, Charleston, and New Orleans are indeed hidden in plain sight. Its eight essays push beyond the familiar fields and big houses of the plantation to small Tennessee towns and Texas’ very edges to prove that ... Read More

  • Smell Detectives: An Olfactory History of Nineteenth-Century Urban America
           by Melanie Kiechle (review)
    • Abstract: Melanie Kiechle’s thoroughly researched and highly evocative journey through the olfac-tory landscape of American cities in the nineteenth century is a welcome contribution to a rapidly growing body of scholarship interrogating the past through the perspective of the senses.1 Long classified with taste and touch as one of the lower senses— intuitive and animalistic, unlike the supposedly more rational and objective senses of sight, and to some extent, sound— smell has captured growing attention as scholars have sought to problematize this sensory ranking inherited from the Enlightenment.2 As Kiechle notes in her introduction, “nineteenth-century Americans took smell seriously,” thus requiring historians to pay ...

  • Modern Coliseum: Stadiums and American Culture by Benjamin D. Lisle
           (review)
    • Abstract: It is hardly novel to study architectural modernism in the United States. Even those problematic developments that rose (or fell) amid urban and suburban schemes in the post–World War II years, from publicly funded inner-city high-rises to developer-driven tract homes on the suburban edge, have received their scholarly due. Yet the written landscape of the American built environment is still missing the huge stadiums of the postwar years: the reinforced concrete, largely circular, and occasionally domed facilities planned and built across the country from the 1950s through the 1970s to accommodate major league baseball, professional football . . . and automobiles. Once politically, economically, imaginatively, and ... Read More

  • The Strip: Las Vegas and the Architecture of the American Dream by Stefan
           Al (review)
    • Abstract: When asked to review The Strip for Buildings & Landscapes I initially demurred. I assumed it was a sequel in the mold of Robert Venturi, Denise Scott Brown, and Steven Izenour’s Learning from Las Vegas (1972). While indisputably important and groundbreaking, perhaps this earlier work’s most enduring takeaway, the alluring deduction that the Las Vegas Strip is composed of “Ducks” and “Decorated Sheds,” continues to pose the danger of being applied without one fully grasping its authors’ sophisticated thought that led up to it. This was eerily demonstrated by several international architecture students, a few years ago, when I was teaching in Tokyo. As we walked down a street lined with machinami (traditional ... Read More

  • Builders, Housewives and the Construction of Modern Athens by Ioanna
           Theocharopoulou (review)
    • Abstract: Ioanna Theocharopoulou’s Builders, Housewives and the Construction of Modern Athens is a historical study of development in Athens, one that traces the theoretical roots of construction, design, nationalism, class, and gender. In so doing, her analysis offers a comprehensive view of the city’s political history, well supported by a tableau of empirical and archival evidence. Each chapter is grounded in archival documents, offering a springboard to primary analysis, from which Theocharopoulou expands the critique, often with her own insight as a local resident of Athens. Theocharopoulou argues that Athens is historically overshadowed by its monumental past, so much so that its modern self, its modern architecture in ... Read More

  • Waterways and the Cultural Landscape ed. by Francesco Vallerani, Francesco
           Visentin (review)
    • Abstract: Waterways and the Cultural Landscape is the outcome of an international conference held in Venice in 2015 on the heritage dimensions of waterscapes and historic canals. Vallerani and Visentin framed this collection in the spirit of collecting some of the most meaningful contributions on this emerging topic. This is never an easy task, given the usual heterogeneity of contributions received, but this variety is by no means a demerit for this edited book.The book is divided into two parts. The first part, “Cultural Visions,” covers a wide range of waterways and waterfronts with high cultural value and unique environmental heritage. Stephen Daniels’s interpretation of the River Trent in the English Midlands as a ... Read More

  • Curated Decay: Heritage Beyond Saving by Caitlin DeSilvey, and:
           Counterpreservation: Architectural Decay in Berlin Since 1989 by Daniela
           Sandler (review)
    • Abstract: Historic preservation in the United States is a paradoxical field, where its methods are constantly the subject of anxiety among practi tioners and its limits are nonetheless inscribed fairly rigidly by most of its constituency. Preservation conferences are rife with discussions of the inadequacy of historic preservation as it is now to address global climate change, to incorporate the urgency of Black Lives Matter, to understand how to survey and preserve resources in shrinking cities. This discourse often attends to perceived limits of knowledge, invoking needs to engage planners, artists, activists, and others who are supposedly outside of the field. Both of these discursive patterns form a fickle horizon, in ... Read More
