What Makes Early American Architecture American
Carl Lounsbury, PhD, Lecturer at Colonial Williamsburg Foundation, Williamsburg, Virginia
Lounsbury’s lecture will consider how English colonists reworked their building practices in response to regional conditions in the American colonies, especially during the 18th century. He will consider how English technologies and building forms changed in response to new materials as well as contact with other colonists and indigenous peoples.
