EDAD316 History of Architecture and Urban Planning II 3cr


The course explores building cultures from around the world from 1400s until the mid-20th century. As the time-line covered in the course starts
with the Renaissance – defined by its radical shift from the previous, predominantly religious, ideological framework, to man-centered belief
systems – the entire period can be generally considered as the Age of Modernity. Therefore, special attention in the course is paid to the
various concepts, understanding, and architectural manifestations of the idea of Modern. Each lecture is based on a variety of
case studies - specific buildings, urban plans and theoretical statements of the leading architects, planners and visionary contributors
to the creation of the built domain, understood through the specificities of the ideological, cultural, and intellectual settings of different
periods and geographies.
