This course offers students the opportunity to visit, document and research prime examples of Mid-Century Modern Architecture in St. Louis. The city has a rich heritage in 20th century modernism and many excellent works that are not well known. Our weekly visits will include talks and tours with designers, architects, clients and historians will put the work into historical and cultural context.

  4. When is the next class? Can one audit it?

  5. We're just starting a new class for the Spring 2013 semester. I'm not certain about auditing. You would have to check with Washington University regarding their policies.
