ADC 221 - History of Architecture and Interiors I
The course concentrates on the major historical movements and theoretical concepts which describe each period from pre-history through Baroque. Lectures will explore ways of interpreting built forms, sculpture and painting so that specific building projects can be understood in the context of the major issues that are central to each period. Extensive reading is required for the purpose of engaging in class discussions that will interpret both the concepts presented and the specific built forms discussed. Interior spaces and their connection to the concepts discussed will attempt to illuminate the relationship between the container and the contained.
