Introduction to the History of Architecture


The survey provides a panorama of architectural production from Antiquity to the present with a global perspective. The objective is to insure knowledge of architectural production, related historiography, contemporary debate, and scholarship. The reading materials are organized chronologically to facilitate the students' approach to the field of architectural history. A thematic approach will inform the lectures, where notions of practice, techniques, spread of knowledge and models among others, are considered in relation to specific case studies.
