ARCH H125 History and Theory of Architecture I

The first in a series of three interrelated courses, this course examines the architectural history and theory from Pre-Antiquity to the Baroque Period (approx. mid-17th century) through build projects, drawings, and theoretical texts. In doing so, it examines architecture in relation to its socio-cultural, political, religious, philosophical, and aesthetic underpinnings. Both Western and Non-Western examples will be discussed.
