ARCH 0875. Architecture and the American Cultural Landscape. 3 Credit Hours.

This course explores the relation of the physical environment, understood as both given and constructed, to the larger and more ephemeral cultural context which it at once delimits and enables. These cultural situations have been usefully understood as "cultural landscapes," a term defined by the World Heritage Committee as distinct geographical areas or properties uniquely "represent[ing] the combined work of nature and man." Deploying this concept of cultural landscapes as a framework, the course will plumb American culture with an emphasis on its physical dimension, exploring the ways that culture is engaged, reflected, and modified in the substance of the places wherein and through which we live our individual and collective lives. The course will ask students to explore how geography, topography, ecology, landscape, economics, and politics have influenced the reading and making of the cultural landscape, and vice versa, how the corporeal characteristics of constructed places have in turn shaped cultural developments and impacted the natural world. At base, then, the course facilitates consideration of the fundamental interdependencies of nature, human nature, and the constructed environment. The course will be founded on case studies, considered in light of key texts (from various disciplines including urbanism, architecture, geography, philosophy, fiction, anthropology, and sociology), topical discussion, and the students' own analyses. NOTE: This course fulfills the U.S. Society (GU) requirement for students under GenEd. Students cannot receive credit for this course if they have successfully completed ARCH 0975.
