What is this class about? What is architectural history? In this class we explore the many aspects of the built environment in order to investigate the basic meanings of buildings and cities. • Not just styles and names and periods (although you will have to know these). • How did people build? What materials and techniques made particular buildings possible? • Most importantly, why did people build? Building is a way of creating our place in the world. • What political, religious, social, economic and intellectual reasons lie behind buildings?
