ARTS 1310 This course will cover architecture from prehistory up to today, looking at examples throughout history and examining the issues that help shape them. The course will not only look at who designed the buildings, but who built them, who used them, and why. Beginning with the earliest manmade shelters and ending with issues influencing architecture today, the course will introduce students to different ways of seeing building and architecture as cultural artifacts.
