Its astonishingly varied buildings can help tell the story of American architectural history from the 1750s on. This course will examine Princetons fascinating relationship to ever-changing architectural trends in America and Britain. Controversies will be emphasized, from nineteenth-century fights about Gothic Revival to current debates about Neo-modernist designs by world-famous architects. This course will enhance your understanding of Americas fourth-oldest campus.
