This course introduces basic steps in
architectural research through the analysis of architectural sites and related
documentation within the Caribbean context. Issues such as dating, function,
design elements, site context, materials and changing usage will be addressed.
Students will record sites through images and learn the tools of descriptive
language, and will investigate the wealth of creativity in Caribbean
vernacular, as well as modern innovations for a Tropical climate.
