Ideas, Tech and Precedents I
Ritual and Stone. This course is a study of ideas and approaches to architectural history through an examination of architecture from prehistory to the end of the Middle Ages in Europe. The relationships between built form, site, ritual, materials, and technology are explored through examples from both western and non-western traditions. Students are expected to be able to research, discuss and analyze the form, composition, and context of a building, and to situate current architectural practice within the larger history of the relationships between building, nature, and culture.
