Now Revised and Updated! Re-decorate. Refurbish. Re-build. Houses need work to keep them up-to-date, and so do educational videos. We’ve taken our popular The American House and brought it up-to-date, into the digital age. If you teach design, history, architecture, or a course about the American city and don’t yet have a copy of The American House, now is a great time to order this brand-new version. The American House lets popular architectural styles “tell their stories” and explain why they remain popular today. The Tudor style explains its roots in the Roaring Twenties and reveals its beginnings in medieval design. A series of Neo-Classic buildings trace their roots to ancient Greece and speculate about why they remain popular thousands of years later. Each style gives viewers visual clues to help identify its style. A lively Victorian explains why it was once an example of “high tech” design and why it still inspires houses built today. The Prairie style explains the strong horizontal lines. Colonial Revival houses explore their origins and viewers learn that the style of a house is a visual expression of social values. The “less is more” contemporary style is contrasted to post-modern styles where “less is a bore.”
