9FA619I Reading Portland's Houses

Campus Contacts

Explore the diversity of Portland's housing, from Victorian cottages to bungalows to ranches...including your own. Novice or expert, this class provides a vocabulary and tools for understanding the ordinary, everyday houses of Portland. 

Techniques for identifying the sometimes confusing styles and types of houses will be stressed including the ability to read and understand house plans from the outside. Students will be encouraged to bring in photographs or sketches of their own houses for discussion and analysis. The three class sessions will be divided among Portland's three most dominant house types: Bungalow, Capes, and Ranches. Portland is known for the quality of its neighborhoods, and the character of its everyday houses plays a significant role in this assessment. Come enjoy the houses. Thomas Hubka has taught in professional schools of architecture and has written books about America's common, vernacular houses.
