Love old buildings but have no idea what you're looking at? In this class, students will receive the rundown of American architectural styles from the late 19th century through the present day, with a focus on local and regional examples. Learn the names of important architectural styles common in the northeast; some basic architectural terminology; and how to approximately date the buildings you see every day. This class builds on the knowledge presented in Crash Course in American Architectural History I: 19th Century, but can be taken on its own if preferred.
This class is appropriate for ages 18+.
This class will take place online through Zoom. Links for Zoom classes will be sent out by 5pm the day of the class. If you do not receive your link, please check your spam or submit an email through our contact page.
