Architecture of Williams College Winter 2023

Class Details

The goal of this course is to research a newly discovered cache of historical architectural drawings of the Williams College campus. These drawings, part of the collection of the Chapin Library, will be the basis for an exhibition. Each student will select a plan or group of plans for study, write a 10-page research paper on it, and then condense that paper into an object label for the exhibition. There will be two 3-hour meetings per week which will include lectures on the history of the Williams College campus, instruction on how to catalogue architectural drawings, and brief student presentations on the course of their research. Collaboration and teamwork will be stressed. The textbook for the class is E. J. Johnson & Michael J Lewis, Williams College: the Campus Guide (Princeton Architectural Press, 2018).
