An overview of the tradition of Western classical architecture from the Renaissance to Art Nouveau. The architectural, cultural, and philosophical relevance of key monuments and theories are introduced within the broad spectrum of the history of ideas and material civilization. Students gain concrete insight into an architectural discipline based on the classical orders, as well as a broad understanding of the historical traditions and modern principles of Western architecture. The first half of the course surveys the rediscovery of the classical architecture and its basic ideas during the Renaissance, and the second half focuses on the emergence of modernity and the concurrent transformations in architectural theories and practice.
