PR-643A Architecture & Urban History: U.S. States

3 Credits

This course explores through lectures and readings the history of world American architecture and urban/city development highlighting the social, cultural, and technological changes that influenced both. It is conceptualized, framed and presented for students studying Historic Preservation. It assumes that students have little familiarity with history of architecture or the city and therefore places emphasis on architectural styles in the context of the development of the city. This course is the second in a two-part series that chronologically covers the broad sweep of the history of world architecture and city development (though each course may be taken independently).
