ARTH 121 - Introduction to Modern Architecture and Design

In this introductory survey, we will study the evolution of Western architecture from the period of the Enlightenment to the twenty-first century. Examining the technological, political, and social contexts of key works throughout this period, we will consider the ways individual structures and the built environment have reflected modern Westerners’ greatest aspirations as well as their deepest anxieties.
