Architecture and the city



This course is an introduction to the discipline of architecture and the phenomenon of the city. It asks itself a simple question: How does the built environment come about? How did it come to look the way it does? How is what we see related to the procedures of design and what ideas underpin these designs? The purpose of this course is to provide the students with the beginnings of a frame of reference with which to analyze and critique the environment they encounter.
