USC 444 – Great Houses of Los Angeles
In my elective course and Elective Course titled Great Houses of Los Angeles and Its Other Stories, I restructured course content that originally included the work of seven white male architects to include readings by Dolores Hayden, feminist performance historian Peggy Phelan, and projects such as 1972 project WomanHouse carried out by the CalArts Feminist Art Program. These texts are taught through the frame of architecture and expose students to the concept of Domestic architecture as it contained the female body.
Teaching the history of domestic architecture in Los Angeles is not only gendered, but inherently a history of segregation and exclusion. Thus, in studying built work in Los Angeles, the course integrates parallel histories of redlining and urban renewal.
