All classes are suspended for the week of March 16. Starting the week of March 23, all classes will resume entirely online. Tulane School of Architecture (TuSA) remains open with most faculty and staff working remotely. Students can be granted access to work in the building only with prior approval from the school. At this time, we are not hosting admissions tours.

Please continue to check your Tulane email, Canvas, the TuSA COVID-19 FAQ, and the Tulane Emergency Management page for updates.

Tulane is working with students who have difficult personal circumstances that would make leaving campus a challenge or will face complications in online learning once they return home. In response, we have set up the Tulane Student Emergency Aid and Assistance Fund to address current student needs.

ARCH
Course Number: 
1110/6110

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.
