If you are a fan of Richmond history or architecture…

ArchitectureRichmond, one of my favorite independent Richmond publications, has a Kickstarter going so that they can revamp their website and put out a video and printed materials.

Over the last 3 years, Mario Accordino, Don O’Keefe, and Ed Slipek have published 150 or so articles about Richmond buildings and neighborhoods at ArchitectureRichmond. CHPN has linked to them any number of times.

ArchitectureRichmond is one of those neat sites where you have something offered at a professional level but done as a labor of love. Take a moment and kick these guys $25.

A few of their recent posts that I particularly enjoyed are:

I was insulted by their sophomoric article in support of Pear Street high rise development. Clearly they did not understand context of the damage that it would cause to the neighborhood. Whether they were paid to place the article, or just had bad judgement they have not revealed. In any event, I have seen no apology from them for it. I would hope in the future they would concentrate on reporting about architecture rather than destroying communities.

@1 Geoffrey, that article was strongly rebutted by Eddie Slipek in an article in Style Weekly. That is noted at the end of the article on ArchitectureRichmond, although I just today read that and it might not have been noted when it was first sent online. Eddie Slipek, whom I know, writes a lot for Style, and also came out with a good article against the ballpark in the Bottom – actually I think he may have written more than one. I understand your frustration with the article by D. O’Keefe, whom I do not know, but I think the… Read more »

Created and funded a fake community organization to pretend that there was community support, c. Produced mis,easing photos and graphics to minimize visual impact, d. Had paid employees lobby our city Councilperson pretending to be representative of community. When the article in question appeared,… Read more »
