Dr. Richard Cloues lectures on the Iconic Ranch House

November 11, 2009

Richard Cloues Nov 2009_smDr. Richard Cloues,  the Deputy State Historic Preservation Officer for Georgia, spoke to a standing-room-only audience on “The Ordinary Iconic Ranch House” last night at the SCAD Student Center.  Over 150 attendees braved the rainy weather to hear Dr. Cloues discuss the history of this ubiquitous house form, what it represented to Post-war Americans and the most popular manifestations of ranch houses in Georgia.  His wide-ranging and lavishly illustrated lecture included many images from popular magazines of the day, vividly showing how widespread was American interest in adopting a house form that represented modernity.  Dr. Cloues earned his Ph.D. in Architectural History from Cornell University and has worked at the Georgia State Historic Preservation Office since 1978.
