This course provides an overview of architecture and ideas of building and community form in major world cultures from the Neolithic era to 1450 C.E. Paying close attention to the social and intellectual contexts in which architecture is produced, we will study the design of built environments at particular times and places, exploring dynamics of continuity, transformation, and exchange on local, regional, national, and international levels. The theory and politics of interpretation and preservation will be emphasized throughout the semester as we examine how architectural narratives are created, sustained, and challenged.
