  • Editors’ Note on Updating Content (Summer 2020)

    The built environment is in constant flux, whether from demolition and new construction, renovations and additions, or changing function and use. Social protest and cultural progress can also transform the built environment, as we have witnessed this summer in efforts to remove monuments to the Confederacy from public spaces. (See “SAH Statement on The Removal of Monuments to the Confederacy from Public Spaces.”)

    As a digital publication, SAH Archipedia strives to ensure that its content is up to date and that published texts accurately reflect physical conditions on the ground. To that end, our editors and authors are reviewing individual entries and essays to identify those that need to be updated.

    While this work is ongoing and continuous, we want our readers to know that we are prioritizing updates to entries and essays (and illustrations and metadata) dealing with monuments to the Confederacy and memorials that otherwise symbolize oppression to indicate (1) the removal of statues and other forms of dismantling or transformation, (2) the renaming or retitling of buildings, parks, plazas, bridges, streets, and highways, (3) necessary contextualizing and interpretations in light of new historical research and scholarship.

    As always, SAH Archipedia’s editors will work with authors and peer reviewers to maintain the highest standards of a scholarly publication.



    Douglass Place

    Row houses are the characteristic housing type of Maryland’s largest city, Baltimore. The row house was adapted to a wide variety of socioeconomic circumstances and popular architectural modes by builders and architects throughout Baltimore’s history. This group of five modest row houses at 516-524 South Dallas Street was built circa 1892 as improved rental housing for African American or Polish immigrant workers. Known as Douglass Place, these narrow, two-bay houses were constructed as an investment property by prominent abolitionist and activist Frederick Douglass. more

    International Peace Garden

    The International Peace Garden (IPG) was conceived in 1928 by Dr. Henry J. Moore as a garden commemorating world peace along the international boundary line where, according to the U.S. bicentennial book project Entres Amis/Between Friends (edited by Lorraine Monk, 1976), "the people of the two countries could share the glories found in a lovely garden and the pleasures found in warm friendships." To realize the Peace Garden, the State of North Dakota donated 888 acres of land, and the Province of Manitoba donated 1,450 acres, all within the coniferous forested area of the Turtle Mountains. more

    House of Awakened Culture

    The Suquamish Tribe’s monumental community house on the Port Madison Indian Reservation provides a tangible symbol of cultural revitalization modeled on traditional Puget Sound longhouses. The house’s Lushootseed name, sgwәdzadad qәł ?altxw (“skwehd-zah-dud-culth-altw”), translated as “House of Awakened Culture,” evokes its role as a place for gatherings, ceremonies, and traditional singing, dancing, and storytelling central to Puget Sound Salish culture. more

    Horiuchi Mural

    The Horiuchi Mural is a public work of art commissioned by fair organizers for the 1962 Century 21 Exposition in Seattle. The design was conceived by the Northwest artist Paul Horiuchi and fabricated under the direction of Italian craftsman Olivo Santagostino. Made up of 54 pieces of Venetian glass in over 160 shades of red, yellow, pink, brown, and green, the “mural,” which is actually a mosaic, was mounted on a curved panel measuring 17 by 60 feet. more
