ARC 431 - Architectural Theory

3 CR

This course is a history of ideas regarding our constructed physical surroundings. An intersection of philosophy, analysis, and history, this course begins to answer the question “What is Architecture?” in a rigorous and analytical way in order to allow students to eventually formulate their own theories and to understand the conceptual underpinnings for their own practice. The course aims to give the student both an understanding of the forces that influence architecture and its meanings, as well as the intellectual tools that will enable them to continue to read, to analyze, and to interpret the physical world.

Prerequisite(s): ARC 212 , ARC 241 , ARC 306 , ARC 312 , ARH 105 , ARH 106 , and ENG 102W  or ENG 317W .
