      Course Description
    Introduction to Architecture provides a fundamental examination of architecture and the built environment, focusing on both western cultures and traditions. Concentrating on 20th-century western developments, the class will arm students with a framework from which the contemporary position of architecture exists. Course material is presented in a lecture format, utilizing multiple media. Course topics include historical examples of architecture, using past and present buildings, landscapes, and urbanism as a tool for developing an understanding and appreciation of the architecture discipline and its design objectives. Course content is drawn from numerous fields including architectural history and theory, the arts and letters, design studies, philosophy, and urban studies, all supporting Louis Kahn's claim that architecture is the handwriting of humanity. Fulfills the SUNY Arts and SUNY Humanities general education requirements.
