W 9:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m., Anderson Hall, Room 148

Based on the intensity and immensity of its climate, size, scale, and infrastructure, Houston is daunting. This seminar reacts to the challenge Houston poses by examining its architectural landscapes; exploring intersections of the natural, the cultural, and the engineered; and explicating-critically analyzing-the ways urbanity and suburbanity are constructed, de-constructed, and re-constructed in Houston.

The goal of this seminar is to encourage you to excavate the historical layers of the places where you live and work. It uses Houston and its architecture as a test case to extrapolate interpretations from the cultures embedded in buildings and sites so that you can begin to externalize these cultural layers and make them accessible.
