Garden Suburbs of the Twin Cities - 2 CE Credits
Time & Location
Oct 12, 2022, 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM CDT
About the Event
This class uncovers the history of some of the most interesting neighborhoods in the Twin Cities: the garden suburbs of the late 19th century. Attendees will learn about national models for this type of community development, and will see the specific design principles used in the creation of garden suburbs. Twin Cities examples will be studied, and the class will conclude with a case study of a well-known example, the St. Anthony Park neighborhood in St. Paul.
We'll discover the connections between residential development and transit patterns, livability, and design trends. You'll leave with a deeper understanding of neighborhood creation and evolution, Twin Cities social and architectural history, and the ways this history still influences our cities today.
This class is taught by art & architectural historian Kristin Anderson.
This course has been approved by the Minnesota Commissioner of Commerce for 2 hours of real estate continuing education credit. It is open to all.
