CRP 1100 - The American City

Fall. 3 credits. Letter grades only.


An introductory course on the physical evolution of the American metropolis – its origins, planning, design and development.  In it we unpack the visions, values and ideals that have shaped settlement patterns on the land from the pre-colonial era to the present day, and interrogate the manifold forces—political, socioeconomic, technological—that have created America’s urban and suburban built environments. Throughout the semester we probe the complex and iterative relationship between space and society in America, seeking to learn what it tells us about our nation and ourselves.
