Synopsis

Catalog Description

This course covers the period following the World’s Columbian Exhibition of 1893 up to WW II.  The architecture and urbanism of this period represented a zenith of the Beaux Arts philosophy of design represented most cogently by the McMillan Plan for Washington, DC (1902) and its many antecedents across the United States.
