GENINT 731.4178

Osher (50+). In this course, we look at the iconic structures in various American cities and how they came to be. 


About this course:

Every city has a particular feel about it, defined by its architecture, demographics, geography, climate, and the people and cultures that have shaped the city from its founding to its current status. From historical to contemporary structures, this course explores the iconic structures that identify various American cities and how they came to be. Discussion of architectural styles and the socio-political context in which these buildings were created lie beneath the developmental time frames in the study of each city included. Cities covered include: Washington DC, Atlanta, Cincinnati, Tulsa, Santa Fe, and others.
