ARHS 3347 - Longhouse to Land Art: A History of the American Built Environment


Credits: 3

A look at human interventions in the American landscape from the pre-Columbian period to the present. Touching on topics as diverse as ancient Puebloan cliff dwellings, the plantation landscape in the nineteenth century, and the post-World War II suburb, lectures and discussion reveal the American built environment as a site repeatedly reshaped in an on-going contest of cultures. In addition to a familiarity with the history of American architecture and landscape, students develop a working knowledge of architectural vocabulary and critical theory. (Temporalities post-1700)
