Arch 231 Architecture and Cultural History II

A series of courses tracing the history of architecture understood as a cultural product from the early Paleolithic Age up to the 20th century. The first course covers from the early Stone Age up to the Iron Age, the second course begins in the 1st century C.E. to cover up to the 19th century, and the third course addresses the 20th century. The courses will focus on a select number of architectural works that are representative of specific cultural beliefs, values, and ideologies in a global context as embodied in architectonic forms and experiences. This is the second course in a sequence of three: Arch 230, Arch 231, and Arch 232 which must be taken in sequence.
