The rise and fall (and perhaps, rise again) of U.S. embassy architecture.
Expires: December 2014
This course is AIA/CES registered for 1LU HSW/SD
The design of the US embassy has been shaped by the political and cultural pressures of each era. With embassy design reflecting a rise and fall and perhaps, a rise, again in the standards that create democracy, power, and security in US embassies, there is, once more, a new potential for design and architecture to play a role.
— Understand the challenges in designing a secure US embassy
— Learn about the rise, fall, and rise again of the role design has played in the design of US embassies
— Learn about the intersection of sustainability and security in embassy design
—Understand the ways in which architects can shape the international perspective of the US through the design of our foreign-built federal structures
