HT1214 - Towards an African American Inspired Architecture

What is an architectural design movement that celebrates and reflects African American culture? This course will explore an approach to architectural design that celebrates African American communities in the United States through referencing their culture, aesthetics, building practices and materials, and sense of spirituality. We will root the approach in the collective African Diaspora heritage of African Americans and examine how modern cultural trends relate back to traditional African traditions brought over by our ancestors. The goal of this course is to discuss and propose new forms of architecture inspired by the way African Americans perceive and utilize space as well as their unique challenges within an American context.
