Web Design & Architecture -- LIS 9723 logo


Note: You'll see this site was originally built in 2013, so it's getting a little long in the tooth. It's also built with the old XHTML standard, so over the course of the term, Mark will be updating it to HTML5.

About the Site

This site is built using Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) for both formatting and layout in a scalable design.

The default typeface is an open source typeface called "Raleway" from Google Fonts. The underlying (header background) art is from CC photographs, sourced on Flickr. They're shots of architecture from around the world and from many eras of human history. Click below to see the originals.
