There will be slide images of MANY local examples (over 500), numerous hands-on artifacts (including vintage architectural prints, periodicals, stereoviews, tools and books) as well as general discussions of methods of construction, technology changes, style changes and the ideas behind them. This class hopes to make connections between the everyday structures around us and the larger architectural themes that helped shape them. Students are greatly encouraged to enhance the class with experiences from their own homes and student photos can be integrated into the slide presentations. Also, we’ll cover topics of restoration and historic preservation, as well as how to solve common old house problems. Hopefully there’ll be something for everyone.
