PR-643B Architecture & Urban History: Europe Middle East, Asia

3 Credits

This course explores through lectures and readings the history of world architecture and urban/city development. It is conceptualized, framed and presented for students studying Historic Preservation. It assumes that students have little familiarity with history of architecture or the city and therefore places emphasis on architectural styles in the context of the development of the city. This course is the first in a two-part series that chronologically covers the broad sweep of the history of world architecture and city development. The second semester will focus on the architecture and urban form of the Americas with special emphasis on the United States.
