Savannah: Reading Urban Form Tour
Apr 30, 2016 - May 13, 2016, Free Events
This tour includes highlights from each of the five talks presented as part of the Reading the City lecture series, while focusing on the downtown area. Topics include how the idealistic origins of the city’s urban plan adapted through time to new social or economic needs; the impact of militia companies and other military influences on the city’s growth; the unique role of public space—squares, streets, trees, pavement—in defining the city’s architectural character; and how humble architectural components of the city, including the architecture of slavery, and global trade networks have shaped the city’s character.
