METHODS OF BIBLIOGRAPHICAL AND ARCHIVAL RESEARCH ON HISTORY OF ARCHITECTURE
Learning outcomes of the course unit
The major aim of the course is to enable students to get archival and bibliographic instruments in order to analyse and understand movements, effects and protagonists (architects, artists, patrons, benefits, etc) in architecture (first Dublin Descriptor). To achieve this aim it’s necessary to always use multiple approaches and different methods of analysis observing the Unity of History (second Dublin Descriptor). Undergraduate should be able: to use the acquired knowledge to make personal and mature judgements (third Dublin Descriptor); to use the appropriate technical language (fourth Dublin Descriptor); to establish logical connections between bibliography and archival documents, to read the complexity of architecture (fifth Dublin Descriptor).
Course contents summary
During their last year, students deal again with historical subjects to improve their instruments of critical analysis and historiographical synthesis, in view both of writing their thesis and of coping more knowingly with their future profession. The course aims to give some hints about archival and bibliographical methods of research in architecture.
