  Course Description
Introduces ways historical conceptions of race and place have impacted the shape and design of our built environment. Examines critical influence of race science on civilizational narratives used to determine meaning and content of 19th century American architecture and designed environments. Traces effects of racial discourses on domestic interpretations of African, Asian, and Latino building traditions. Reviews tools American architects and designers have used to represent social and cultural values of different racial and ethnic groups, from Victorian houses of New England towns to campus planning and design strategies of Historically Black Colleges and Universities. Challenge interpretations how past racial politics continues to shape design, structure, and character of today's built environment. Evaluates how social construction of racial identity still influences patterns of residential segregation, voting districts, land-use, and material investments in the public sphere. This course is the same as ARC 322 and course repeat rules will apply.
