  • From Ritual to Protest: Sukkot in the Garden of Hope
    • Abstract: In September 2011, over five thousand people in Israel received a Facebook invitation to an unprecedented political gathering, organized by a handful of Israeli students, to take place during the Jewish holiday of Sukkot. The invitation read, "Building Sukkot of Social Justice—That will change the face of Israel."1 By this time these students were known in Israel, as they had provoked a series of political demonstrations over the previous months that rocked Israel's civil society. On July 14, 2011, following the Arab Spring and preceding the Occupy Movement in the United States, undergraduate film student Daphni Leef had pitched a tent and slept on the café-lined Rothschild Boulevard in central Tel Aviv to protest ...

  • The Coed's Predicament: The Martha Cook Building at the University of
           Michigan
    • Abstract: The word coed, when used to refer to a person, is jarring to modern ears. Coed suggests second-class status—and indeed women were second-class citizens in the educational landscape of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The word was originally used as an adjective—a shortened form of coeducational—as it still is today. In the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, however, coed was regularly used as a noun, meaning "a female student at a mixed-gender college."1 The word male was not needed to modify student. Coeds were women. Students were men.2Women's dormitories on coeducational campuses raise questions about gender, exclusion, and the history of higher education. As a communal dwelling ... Read More

  • Placing Radio in Sackville, New Brunswick
    • Abstract: Radio cabinets became a common sight in North American homes in the 1920s and 1930s. The electronic medium not only offered a new spatial experience to listeners, who could "visit" distant spaces with the turn of a dial, but left a substantial imprint on the built environment. Buildings dedicated to the production or transmission of radio broadcasts became landmarks in cities such as New York, with Radio City Music Hall in Rockefeller Center, and Los Angeles, with its "Radio City" of NBC and CBS studios in Hollywood. Even a small city like Timmins, in Northern Ontario, could boast about its modern Daily Press Building, which hosted station CKGB.1 Indeed, from the radio cabinet in the home to large-scale ...

  • Research Notes: Design for Mobility: Intercity Bus Terminals in the Puget
           Sound Region
    • Abstract: Intercity buses were significant in transportation networks serving American cities and towns during much of the twentieth century. Bus terminals were once an important building type, an element of the vernacular urban landscape. In the twentieth century, intercity buses offered a new form of mobility, and bus terminals showed how this new technology was manifested in place, both architecturally and urbanistically. American architectural journals occasionally published designs for bus terminals along with other types of transportation facilities.1 Yet surprisingly little scholarship has been published about this building type.2 Part of the reason for the lack of attention is that bus companies only occasionally ...

  • Architecture and Empire in Jamaica by Louis P. Nelson (review)
    • Abstract: Readers worried about the vitality of meaningful fieldwork in early modern buildings need look no further than Louis Nelson's new Architecture and Empire in Jamaica for reassurance. It is all the more heartening that the book grows in part from a fruitful series of architectural field schools held for about a decade. The book substantially raises the bar for other field school faculty. And it does much more. This is a major work that deserves reading by everyone interested in the Caribbean, slavery and race, Georgian gentry culture, and architectural interpretation. It offers a wide-ranging and briskly readable account of Jamaican, West African, and British buildings embodying the story of eighteenth- and early ... Read More

  • Selling Paris: Property and Commercial Culture in the Fin-de-siècle
           Capital by Alexia M. Yates (review)
    • Abstract: Strolling through commercial streets all over France, one notices countless storefronts showcasing photographs of apartments or houses for sale or for rent. Selling Paris addresses, among many paths of inquiry, how the ubiquitous profession of agent immobilier (realtor) came of age in 1870s Paris, the outcome of a frantic upsurge in residential construction. The period adage "Quand le bâtiment va, tout va" (When building goes, everything goes), which equates a thriving building industry with a healthy economy, remains the credo of French politicians and economists and—anecdotally but not insignificantly—Largier and John Arthur et Tiffen, two key realtors and property managers studied in this book whose firms are ...

  • The Mutual Housing Experiment: New Deal Communities for the Urban Middle
           Class by Kristin M. Szylvian (review)
    • Abstract: Until Kristin M. Szylvian's The Mutual Housing Experiment, histories of pre-1950 American housing policy tended to move quickly from the creation of the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) in 1934 and public housing in 1937 to the spurt of commercial home building in 1939 to the government-built defense and war housing in the early 1940s. According to Szylvian this scenario ignores one of the most architecturally and economically innovative phases in American housing history, the tortuous but momentarily successful effort to interject into the shelter-acquisition equation a third, nonspeculative form of tenure: mutual home ownership. Not only would this wartime experiment with the mutual concept be perceived as ... Read More

  • The Suburban Church: Modernism and Community in Postwar America by
           Gretchen Buggeln (review)
    • Abstract: As Americans recovered from World War II, they gravitated toward religion and the suburbs. According to the U.S. Department of Commerce, for example, in seven of ten years from 1960 to 1970, Americans spent more than $1 billion annually on the construction of sacred spaces. Gretchen Buggeln's The Suburban Church: Modernism and Community in Postwar America provides a place in historical scholarship for these understudied buildings. Buggeln connects daily life with religious life as she tells us about not only the church buildings but also the social and educational rooms, administrative offices, and recreational spaces that completed the complexes. Her introduction, "New Times, New Architecture: Making a Place for ... Read More

  • Obsolescence: An Architectural History by Daniel M. Abramson (review)
    • Abstract: Obsolescence fundamentally involves loss—the old making way for the new, the so-what stepping aside for the gee-whiz. Yet as Daniel M. Abramson argues in his history of obsolescence in architecture in the twentieth century, the idea has played an even greater role as a constructive force, one that has been at the very center of architectural and urban practice over much of the last hundred years. Architects and planners designed because of obsolescence, using it as the justification for plans that replaced buildings and even cities. They designed to accommodate obsolescence, creating structures that could change over time without requiring complete demolition. And they designed in spite of obsolescence, shaping new ... Read More

  • Zoo Renewal: White Flight and the Animal Ghetto by Lisa Uddin (review)
    • Abstract: Part museum, midway, and animal prison, zoos are decidedly spectacular: environments meant both to heighten and assuage public fears of nonhuman savagery. Today, however, zoos have become such a familiar part of the urban landscape that it is easy forget how bizarre they are. Sympathetically cast as arks in the park, zoos require enormous budgets to house and—more often than the public would care to know—replace their star attractions, large numbers of which die when they are removed from their natural habitats, fed human-contrived diets, and forced to live in spaces designed to entertain human visitors. Moreover, a visit to a zoo is often punctuated by periods of boredom, if not a nagging sense of guilt. Zoos' ... Read More

  • Making Suburbia: New Histories of Everyday America ed. by John Archer,
           Paul J. P. Sandul, and Katherine Solomonson (review)
    • Abstract: Making Suburbia starts from the premise that the people who have occupied suburbia's little boxes have never been "all the same" (viii). Today's scholarship depicts a heterogeneous suburbia that is "quintessentially local" (ix). Editors John Archer, Paul J. P. Sandul, and Katherine Solomonson have assembled a collection that "looks closely at processes of making by examining the actions and circumstances that produce what the actors . . . know as suburbia" (viii). So rather than defining suburbia or suburbanites as they are typically understood—on the basis of municipal boundaries, the built environment, neighborhood demographics, or stereotypical lifestyles—the chapter authors look at the ways suburban designers ...

  • Last Project Standing: Civics and Sympathy in Post-Welfare Chicago by
           Catherine Fennell (review)
    • Abstract: The tales and travails of public housing in Chicago have provided a rich trove of disturbing materials for countless journalists and academic authors over the past several decades. Bradford Hunt provides an excellent history of the Chicago Housing Authority's epically troubled past in Blueprint for Disaster: The Unraveling of Chicago Public Housing (2009). Much of the other writing has entailed place-specific documentation of the decline and fall of "the projects"—told either through harrowing accounts of personal histories such as Alex Kotlowitz's best-selling There Are No Children Here: The Story of Two Boys Growing Up in the Other America (1991) or by autopsies of those failed policies intended to rectify ...

  • Ethno-Architecture and the Politics of Migration ed. by Mirjana Lozanovska
           (review)
    • Abstract: Ethno-Architecture and the Politics of Migration, edited by Mirjana Lozanovska, is a welcome addition to a growing literature on informal urbanism, cultural difference, and embodied placemaking.1 The collection of essays draws attention to the impact of migration on the making and remaking of places, whether at the scale of the home, street, neighborhood, city, or beyond. While the topic of global migration has been discussed and debated in other fields for some time, it is only within the past ten years that migration has fully entered into architectural discourse, as evidenced by several recent articles in this journal. This delay may be due to the fact that the politics of migration confronts the boundaries ... Read More
