LA History II Wk. 2 Case Study -not a report – it should develop some insights from it and controversy and discussion -turn knowledge into judgement -Good Source: The Cultural Landscape Foundation (TCLF) Spanish (West) Compare typologies and analyze site layouts Intentional cultivation of crops Mounds were for burial ceremonies Chaco Canyon- There are signs in the layout that the Puebloans had a hierarchical society. Who ever was on top of that mound was the most important Kivas-It’s suggested that in chaco canyon there wasn’t as much of a hierarchy because there isn’t only one kiva or hierarchy in the layout Laws of the Indies -human treatment of natives (it was supposed to stop the persecution of natives) -also dictated how you laid out towns [Spanish invaded, then occupied. They were after gold, to enlighten natives, and the fountain of youth] -Also accounted for: River transportation, climate&comfort, waste disposal, defensibility Vitruvian Principles – how to make gardens, town layout Palimpsest- something was used over multiple times (such as paper) Savannah Organized a grid system with corners facing North and South to control environmental factors like wind. And they would shad the walkways to keep merchants out of the sun
