This archive, currently consisting of nearly 1,500 digitized images of American architecture (280 buildings) plus explanatory material, was originally constructed as a supplement to my course FA 267 From Saltbox to Skyscraper: Architecture in America. This class surveys the development of architecture in America from the 17th century to the present, with particular emphasis given to local architectural monuments. More on the background of these pages can be read here. There is also a related Archive of European Architecture.
