One of my favorite sources of study on American architecture, SAH Archipedia, published by the Society of Architectural Historians, has added new entries from the state of Minnesota. Compiled by Victoria M. Young, University of St. Thomas professor and Chair of Art History and SAH 2nd Vice President, and historic landscape preservationist Frank Edgerton Martin, in collaboration with a variety of contributors, this selection embraces buildings of a wide spectrum, from high style, to vernacular, to industrial landscapes, comprising all styles, from Arts and Crafts, through Queen Anne, to High Modernism, to Postmodernism. It presents the wealth of architecture built in Minnesota, definitely making me plan a trip to the Midwestern state this spring. Above: the fabulous Voya Financial Building, built in Minneapolis in 1964, designed by Minoru Yamasaki and Associates.
