URBS 370 - Seminar in Architectural History: Rome of the Imagination

Semester Offered: Spring
1 unit(s)
(Same as ART 370 ) No city has had a greater influence on the architectural imagination than Rome. Throughout western history the standard for architecture has been measured by Rome. In this seminar we investigate the continuing hold and varied architectural interpretations of Rome and Romanness: the built Rome, the ruined Rome, and the imagined Rome. How has Rome changed its significance for architects over time? Among the architects we consider Andrea Palladio, Giovanni Battista Piranesi, E. L. Boullée, Giuseppe Terragni, Albert Speer, Gunnar Asplund, Louis Kahn and others. We may also consider those such as John Ruskin who reject the Roman stamps. Mr. Adams.

Prerequisite: permission of the instructor.

One 2-hour period.
