What is revealed about Idaho’s socio-economic and cultural development by interpreting its architecture, both past and present? A team of four UI architecture faculty is pursuing answers to this question, working to complete a contract with the Society of Architectural Historians (SAH) to identify, research and interpret 100 of Idaho’s most representative buildings. Their project is part of SAH Archipedia, an interactive online encyclopedia of American architecture. This presentation will provide an overview of project’s goals and challenges, the process used by the team to determine the Idaho 100 list, and a few examples of work completed to date.


Nels Reese and Wendy McClure are professors emeritus of architecture. They both taught urban theory and the history of cities. Phil Mead and Anne Marshall are faculty members in the program in architecture, who currently teach the history of architecture. All four, from a variety of perspectives, incorporate interpretations of Northwest architecture, culture and communities into their scholarship.
