Class Title Seminar in Thresholds of Architectural Theory
Description The seminar examines selected writings by some of the seminal theoreticians of architecture´┐Ż - from Vitruvius to Robert Venturi´┐Ż - whose work proved instrumental in shaping the character of architectural thought and production both in their own time and in subsequent periods.
