Class Title History of Architecture I
Description This course is the first in the undergraduate two-course sequence (Arch 313/323) surveying the history of architecture from antiquity to the present. The course introduces students to leading developments in the history and theory of architecture and urban design from ancient times through the Renaissance. Innovation and change in architectural conception, stylistic expression, building typology, and construction technique are examined. Attention is also paid to the way architecture has historically been shaped by varying combinations of the formal and theoretical intentions of the architect, the preferences and needs of the client, and the particular mix of social, economic, cultural, and technical factors operating to define the specific characteristics of a given time and place.
