Class ARCH 323
Class Title History of Architecture II
Description A continuation of Arch 313, this course is the second in the undergraduate two-course sequence (Arch 313/323) surveying the history of architecture from antiquity to the present. The course examines leading developments in the history and theory of architecture and urban design from the Baroque through the twentieth century. Consideration is given to the role of innovation and change in architectural conception, stylistic expression, building typology, and construction technique. Also examined is 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.
