SAH Archipedia: New Interpretive Content for Public Access

Updates to the Society of Architectural Historians’ Archipedia and Archipedia Classic Buildings, which together constitute online resources of the American built environment for both public and academic audiences.  The project would result in 47 new essays, 370 new building entries, 270 revised building entries, 117,000 bibliographic references, 25 K-12 lesson plans, and 25 public lectures.

In a collaborative effort, SAH and UVA Press seek funds to commission new content and site enhancements to both versions of SAH Archipedia to enhance its content and usability: (1) NEW: Commission 20 new thematic essays and 100 new building entries by leading historians; (2) REVISIONS: Commission 27 place-based interpretive essays, 270 new building entries and 270 updated building entries from the first 9 BUS books; (3) REFERENCES: Add more than 100,000 references to SAH Archipedia; (4) OUTREACH: Commission 5 teachers to write 25 lesson plans based on SAH Archipedia and hire 25 humanists to lecture/discuss the built environment; (5) MOBILE DELIVERY: Redesign SAH Archipedia to accommodate responsive design, enabling readability on mobile devices; and (5) WEBSITE: Redesign the user interface to accommodate new content outlined above. All of these enhancements will benefit the open access, public site, SAH Archipedia: Classic Buildings as well as the subscription site, SAH Archipedia.
