Building Case Studies
This course furthers architectural history knowledge and critical thinking skills by reconstructing selected buildings' conceptual and theoretical aspirations. Programs and morphologies of exemplary historic and contemporary buildings from around the world are examined as a convergence of cultural, political, ecological, and technological developments at a specific place and time. Student research and analysis skills are synthesized through exercises such as drawing, diagramming and modeling. PREREQ: ARCH-3006 (lec 3) cr 3.
