Cultural Landscape: Folk Housing AP Human Geography By Ms. McAlister Career Center High Cultural Landscape a characteristic and

tangible outcome of the complex interactions between a human group and the natural environment BUILT LANDSCAPE - an area of land represented by its features and patterns of human occupation and use of natural

resources Geographer Carl Sauer Cultural Landscape Two major questions guide this field 1. How does space, place, and landscape

shape culture? 2. How does culture shape space, place, and landscape? As you think about food, sport, housing traditions consider these questions. Dont forget to view built landscape

differently than cultural landscape! Cultural Geography Folk Housing According to Jean

Brunhes, folk housing is based on the influence of one's environment. Buildings erected

without architect or blueprint diffuses slowly through migration clustered distributions

isolation/lack of interaction breeds uniqueness Folk Culture: deep connection to environment/sacred space see

note: Iceland Folk Housing Fred Kniffen said that housing was a good

reflection of cultural heritage, fashion, functions and the environment: Housing is influenced by: 1. building materials available Ex) log cabins, sod homes, adobe homes versus popular housing which will move the material and architecture

without emphasis on environment. 2. social /environmental customs of the people Example: A hogans door faces east so that the first rays of the rising sun enter the home.

Fred Kniffen identified three hearths (nodes or origins). They are New England, Middle Atlantic, Lower Chesapeake. These homes were created when people arrived in the U.S. to the 1800s. When they migrated they took the style with

popular culture like? Distribution of Folk and Popular Housing U.S. Popular Housing Since mid-twentieth century, houses display popular culture rather than regional influences.

Most people no longer build their own houses but instead are mass-produced by construction companies. Houses show the influence of shapes, materials, detailing, and other features of architectural style in vogue at any one point in time.

Modern houses you can argue are are folk: http://www.citylab.com/housing/2012/04/evolution-american-drea m-colonial-times-today/1862/
