Course Description

As a broad introduction to architecture, this course will stress the diversity of architectural discourse historically and will present the principle works and issues of the architectural profession today. The course serves as both a required foundation course for architecture students and a general introduction to architecture for students of other majors. Architecture is a notoriously vast knowledge base with many areas of consensus and a few areas of serious contention. This course will present a generalized framework of that architectural knowledge base and help to understand works of architecture and design in the larger cultures they serve.
