This course will focus on the changing forms of buildings. Through critical examinations of different types of buildings, students will be introduced to forms shaped by culture, economics and use and the ways that changes in the use and considerations of buildings, landscapes and space can shape form.

A series of site visits to significant buildings during the semester will illuminate different types and inform students about form change.

Students in the class will be required to document form change through studies of buildings using drawings, words and models.
