European Architecture in the Sixteenth and Seventeenth Centuries



This module will focus on some of the most important architects working in Europe during the six-teenth and seventeenth centuries. It will be organised around key architects and their works will be studied together with their theoretical production. The module aims to introduce students to the ideas shaping architecture in the period 1500-1700, to examine the relationship of theory and practice and to consider how architectural ideas were presented. It will use material from the Early Printed Book collection and students will study both books and buildings.

Lecturer: Dr Marie Elisa Morales.
