- From the Instructor:
- Greetings! My name is Dr. Julianne Sandlin, and I am the instructor for ART 215. The following information will give you a better idea about the goals and content of this course. ART 215 examines the historical origins and elements of American house styles in order to develop insights into the residential architecture of our own era. As an architectural history class, it presents the historical context in which the styles develop, making an understanding of the history just as relevant as knowledge of the styles. Therefore, students will not only learn to identify elements and components of particular styles of American residential architecture, but they will also understand the origins of American residential architecture and its relationship to the social, political, economical, and religious influences of the various time periods.
