Places that Love People: Practical, Symbolic, and Psychological Aspects of Architecture

The Architects Association and Habitat for Humanity of Santa Cruz County present the first of a series of lectures, “Places that Love People,” by historian, author and architectural consultant Ross Eric Gibson. Gibson lectures about practical, symbolic and psychological aspects of architecture as shown through the history of our Santa Cruz County. He gives an overview the architectural styles of early ethnic groups, how towns evolved, why American styles appeared, and how the fight between Humanism and Utilitarianism led to the Historic Preservation Movement.
