As the publication that accompanied the inaugural Arthur Ross Architecture Gallery exhibition, The History of History in American Schools of Architecture, 1865-1975, this book traces a genealogy of history pedagogy in US architecture schools. Focusing on historical paradigms and their relationship to design, and the goals and experiences of architecture schools—rather than the development of unique individual talents—the volume aims to advance the exhibition’s goal of demonstrating the great range and potential of historical attitudes.
