ARCH 3311 - Tales of Two Cities

Fall. 3 credits.

Prerequisites: ARCH 2301  and ARCH 3301 , or permission of instructor. Not offered every year. Co-meets with ARCH 6311 .


Spurred on by rapid technological innovations, Paris and New York altered the fabrics of their urban personalities with dramatic landscape architectural productions. Public parks, grand avenues, social housing schemes, playground designs, urban corporate estates, rooftop gardens, waterfront recovery and international expositions are but some of the areas which will be investigated during the course. The cross fertilization of ideas between important figures in landscape architecture such as Jean Adolphe Alphand, Eugene Haussmann, Gabriel Gueverkian, in Paris, and Frederick Law Olmsted, Robert Moses and Gilmore Clarke in New York will be reviewed to understand how the “old world” and the “new” contributed to distinctly innovative approaches affecting each city’s open space designs.
