Tuesday, December 18th | 7:00pm-8:30pm | Crash Course in American Architectural History II - 20th Century
Love old buildings but have no idea what you're looking at? In this class, we'll give you 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 19th century architecture isn’t your thing.
