ARC* K102 - Architecture of the World


3 CREDIT HOURS
The course offers a global perspective of buildings, their settings, and the dissemination of ideas about architecture from the late Neolithic period to the pres­ent. Particular attention is given to the relationships of architectural expression, meaning and building technology and to issues arising when architectural traditions of one culture are imposed upon or otherwise adapted by another. Students will explore the impact of climate, economy, philosophy, social structure and technology on architecture by becoming familiar with some of the world’s major monuments in architectural history. The course also integrates the visual arts that paralleled each era, exploring the fundamental elements of each movement as illustrated through aesthetic expression.
