ARCH 101 - Introduction to Architecture

3 credits (3 lecture)
This course is designed to familiarize the students with the nature of architecture by studying the buildings constructed down through history. Special focus and examination is paid to significant structures; how they were built, how they stand structurally and how they grew out of the local culture, available materials and technology. The course starts with an overview of structural systems and then starts with ancient Egypt and proceeds through the major styles to the present modern masters. The material is presented in a lecture format with occasional slide lectures. A term paper is required.
