Not too easy. Not too difficult.
It is a very engaging class, which incorporates history and architecture. The class also has a written component and can serve as a GRW class. I think anyone who wants to take this requirement should take this class. You learn something interesting yet different than any other class.
You not only learn about the architecture but about the people, events and you are able to visualize how society and culture changes over time due to various circumstances. This course shows different artistic movements and how people create new movements that shape the architecture you see. The written component helped me learn how to write a research paper and how to slowly build up to my final draft.

Advice for students:
Attend every class, for the quizzes you will need to have information from the readings but mostly from the lectures. If there is an extra credit opportunity take it, it could make a difference in your final grade and is usually interesting. Good study groups outside of class are also very helpful. Research different buildings well before deciding, and then choose a building which interests you the most and which you can find yourself writing a lot of.
