Join the Cranbrook Center for Collections and Research Collections Fellow Kevin Adkisson for this six-week lecture series surveying the history of six building typologies in American architecture. By examining the intersection of design with social, political, and economic forces, this series will introduce ways of seeing and understanding our built environment.

The 75-minute, image-based lectures will survey four centuries of American architecture, focusing on the arc of modernism from the late 19th century to the present day. By examining the evolution of six building types, attendees will come to more fully understand and analyze the built landscape we live in every day. All levels of architecture knowledge are welcome.

Lectures will introduce major themes and theories that have shaped American architecture, along with significant individual projects and their architects. The course will analyze both the icons of architecture history and introduce you to less familiar people and places who have shaped American history.
