Course Description

Every city has a particular feel about it, defined by its architecture, demographics, geography, climate, and the people and cultures who have shaped the city from its founding to its current status.  From historical to contemporary structures, this course will explore 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 San Francisco, Seattle, Philadelphia, and New York.
