The Arizona 100 Buildings project is part of a national project, called Archipedia, sponsored by the Society of Architectural Historians - http://sah-archipedia.org/.  The goal of the national project is to develop a comprehensive online encyclopedia for the 100 most representative buildings, landscapes, and sites in each state.  For Arizona’s contribution to this project, a working group of academics, design and preservation professionals has compiled a Preliminary Master List of over 150 buildings (see link to attachment below), most of which have achieved some level of recognition (design awards, inclusion on the National Register of Historic Places, etc.).  

Arizona 100 Buildings Survey

The next step is to narrow down the Preliminary Master List to the top 100 sites through a voting process by the design and preservation communities.  To participate in the Arizona 100 Buildings survey, you may first want to review/print the Preliminary Master List (see attachment below) which has comprehensive site information to make your top selections.  Then, access the online survey - https://uarizona.co1.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_3Q21pjAkgohzAvH - to transfer your votes.  The online survey tool only allows you to vote once.  

Voting will end June 6th 2014 and the results will be announced at the Arizona Historic Preservation Conference, June 11-13, at the Esplendor Resort in Rio Rico AZ - https://azpreservation.com/.  We invite anyone interested in participating in the Working Group’s next efforts (including research, photography, writing building entries) to join us at the conference where we will meet on Thursday June 12, 3-4pm in the San Carlos Room.

If you’re interested in joining the Working Group but can’t make the conference, have suggestions for buildings not on this list, or any general questions, please forward them to Project Co-Coordintor Jason Fox, jtf2t@virginia.edu
