History of Architecture

This course provides an introduction to the history of architecture from ancient times to modern days. It explores the relationships between historical developments in architecture and wider changes in the social, technological and aesthetics realms. The study of architecture will serve as a window into broader aspects of cultural history. Simultaneously, the course will examine architecture as a unique medium, with its own visual codes, spatial forms and material structures. In this sense, the history of architecture will be seen in terms of the internal dynamics and ongoing issues of what it means to design and build in any context. The students will be expected to develop visual literacy in the forms and trends of architecture over the various periods. Emphasis will be placed on learning to look at buildings and architectural representations in a deeper way. The history of architecture will be read both from the outside, as a consequence of certain social, economic and ideological forces, and from inside, as a problem of the evolution of the construction materials, technology and science.
