Class ARCH 326
Class Title Design Fundamentals II
Description Through the examination of exemplary buildings, this course considers techniques and strategies of architectural design. Lectures present analyses of individual buildings relating their form and conceptual ambitions to relevant theoretical premises and historical contexts. The works examined range from the early part of the last century through the present and trace the diverse trajectory of developments in twentieth century architecture. Lectures and readings examine structuring principals of design including programmatic organization, material construction, formal syntax, and type. The course aims to reveal and make available to students design strategies found in historically significant and varied examples of architecture while instilling a critical understanding of all these approaches.
