Early Design History

HSTY 2002

Course description

This course introduces students to the foundations of the period styles of architecture and interiors used in North America from the beginnings of European settlement to the beginning of the 19th century. The influences on earlier styles - from pre-historic through the Graico-Roman period to the French Empire period - are explored and brought into context with the later periods of architectural history. Social and political relevancies will be established to help explain the development of the environmental design arts. Students will keep a notebook with information and pictures of the various styles studied
