During undergrad I took an architectural styles course where we had to be able to look at a building (or a photo of one like this guide) and name the style and date of construction based on the visual clues. It was one of the most interesting seminars I took, and to this day I can still look at a building and date it within a few years. (Which gets either a “how the hell did you know that?” or “oh geeze, there she goes again” from others.) Guess I’m just a big old archi-nerd.
So even if you’ve passed PPP already…check this out and see what you can identify when you’re out on the town. I suspect there’s a bit of a nerdy streak in all of us.
