Moderated by Keith Morgan, Director of Architectural Studies, Boston University

Professor Bluestone will explore the changing theories and practices that have guided designers in building residences within the broader landscape and in shaping landscapes surrounding residences.

He frames the changing theories of prospect and aspect as they guided ideas about the appropriate relationship between residence and site in domestic landscapes such as:

* Charles Eliot’s residential landscapes
* Hollin Hills, a modern post-World War II residential subdivision in Alexandria, Virginia
* Chicago courtyard apartment buildings of the late 19th and early 20th century
