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 constituting a domestic landscape, focused primarily on the United States from the late 18th century to the early 21st century.
