University of Washington Department of Architecture Architecture 150 - Appreciation of Architecture Autumn Quarter 2009 - Professor Ann Huppert Syllabus appreciate : to think well of; understand and enjoy; esteem; to recognize and be grateful for; to be fully or sensitively aware of, notice with discrimination. Webster's New World Dictionary Course Goals: The goal of this 3-credit lecture class is to introduce you to architecture and to make you care about it; to encourage you to understand architecture's past, become aware of its present and begin to imagine its future. We will do this by means of lectures illustrated with slides and four quizzes. When you appreciate something you don't just know about it. You begin to care about it, it matters to you, you notice it – you love it. This is true of whatever we appreciate: basketball, music, writing, family and ancestors. This quarter we begin to learn architecture's story by illustrating the history and traditions of architecture in ways that will make you know about it, notice it, and care about it. Architecture refers not only to buildings. Architecture is human settlement, physical settings made by humans for their traditions, rituals, living, working, making community. It is the house, street, city, temple, church, theater, city hall, market, park, and garden. It embodies the relationship of humans and the natural world, represents our most basic need, shelter, as well as our loftiest aspirations. About this course:
