American Architecture: UCB Campus
Mon. | Wed. | Fri. | 10:00 - 11:00am
This course takes as its subject the U. C. Berkeley campus as a product of many disparate visions about the nature of the institution and the role of the built environment in instruction and in envisioning a landscape of learning. Our emphasis will be on the core campus buildings, those built between 1880-1930, and especially those designed by John Galen Howard, Bernard Maybeck, and Julia Morgan. Each student will become expert on several buildings, and will serve as guide for a public campus architectural tour scheduled for the afternoon of May 7.
This course fulfills the following Major requirements: Geographical areas (C), and Chronological period (III), based on the topic of the final research paper or project.
