ARTH528 - NEOCLASSICAL PHILA

Topic varies.
Section 401 - SEM
The focus of this proseminar will be on the Neoclassical architecture of Philadelphia (c.1800-1850) as well as the preconditions for the arrival of this first ‘international style’ in the US. We will investigate architectural key monuments in town (from B. Latrobe’s lost Bank of Pennsylvania to T.U. Walter’s Girard College), explore the printed documentation and plan archives, and also pay attention to Philadelphia’s outstanding Neoclassical ‘late-bloomers’ of the early 20th c. (most importantly, the PMA). – Guest lectures, field trips, and practical instructions of architectural documentation. No prerequisites.
