THE BUILT ENVIRONMENT IMAGEóPAST AND FUTURE

To many people, the rustic imagery of the CCC era

remains the most positive image for the built

environment of the Forest Service. Perhaps this

image remains popular because of its strong

relation to the natural, cultural, and economic

contexts; its reflections of a frontier past; and

the humanizing aspects of handcrafted buildings.

In subsequent decades, different stylistic trends

have touched the Forest Service, with varying

levels of success. All were responses to the

context and spirit of the times.

 

Many trends have had positive effects, but others

simply reflect the changing context of the times.
