HISTORY OF ARCHITECTURE IV
Learning outcomes of the course unit
the course aims to supply historical-critical, bibliographic and archivist’s tools for an analysis and understanding of architectures of the past
Course contents summary
the teaching proposal will be basically sub-divided into two currents. The first examines one of the formal aspects that characterizes Western architecture in the modern age, i.e., the use of Greek/Roman architectural order as its structural scheme and, above all, as its means of representation; the goal of the second is to provide students with adequate source and archive skills on architecture of the past, agreed upon with course instructors, including through visits and seminars in main local archives and libraries, in order to provide professional tools increasingly requested of architects by local authorities, private clients and public works agencies in which they are requested to work on historical buildings and/or contexts.
Will be given at the beginning of the course
classroom lectures including the projection of architectural images and guided teaching tours
