Summary
  • Buildings of Alaska traces Alaska's architecture from the earliest dwellings made of sod, whalebone, and driftwood to the glass and metal skyscrapers of modern-day Anchorage. Focusing on the various cultural traditions that have helped shape the state's architecture, the volume also explores how Alaska's buildings reflect Alaskans' attempts to adapt to the unique conditions of their environment. Alison K. Hoagland examines the contributions to the state's architectural history of three major cultural groups: native Alaskans, Russian settlers, and Americans from the lower 48. Divided into six regions - South Central, Southeastern, Interior, Northern, Western, and Southwestern - entries cover such structures as aboriginal houses, Russian Orthodox churches, log roadhouses, false-front commercial buildings constructed during the gold rush, concrete Moderne public buildings of the 1930s, and high-rise office buildings erected during the oil boom of the 1970s and 1980s
  • Buildings of Alaska contains over 250 magnificent photographs, drawings, and maps, and will serve as an authoritative reference for scholars and students of architectural history, a compelling source of information for the general reader, and a splendid guidebook for the traveler
