Synopsis

Catalog Description

This course will explore the history, theory and practice of vernacular architecture studies. Looking at the "common buildings of particular regions and time periods," the course will prepare students for studying and documenting these buildings in terms of both analysis and documentation, as well as thinking about the patterns and meanings of their use at both the individual and community level. Vernacular architecture studies draws on a broad theoretical perspective that engages many disciplines and critical approaches.
