The New Haven Building Archive (NHBA) is a digital, mobile, and interactive field guide to New Haven, Connecticut’s built heritage. As an interactive digital guide and database for local buildings, the NHBA harnesses digital mapping technologies, place-based storytelling and community-based research. Ultimately, the development of the NHBA will aid in the co-production of knowledge about the city by students, academic researchers and local citizens in a way that will facilitate conversations about the historical patterns and future development of New Haven while suggesting a model for engaged teaching and research for urban studies more broadly.
