ARCH 2120 - The Building and Thinking of Architecture 2

This course expands upon notions introduced in ARCH 2110 that architecture is a practice embedded in human cultures characterized by particular ways of thinking in action. In addition, notions that its domain of interests, physically and intellectually, extends beyond the limits of individual buildings are elaborated through specific examples. This is done against the background of the major shift in intellectual developments beginning in the 17th century that provide stimulus for the scientific, cultural, technological, and social revolutions of the 18th, 19th, and 20th centuries. Unlike ARCH 2110, this course for the most part, does not proceed in a chronological fashion.

Prerequisites/Corequisites: Prerequisite: ARCH 2110.

When Offered: Spring term annually.

Credit Hours: 2
