URBS 272 - Buildings and Cities after the Industrial Revolution

1 unit(s)
(Same as ART 272 ) Architecture and urbanism were utterly changed by the forces of the industrial revolution. New materials (iron and steel), building type (train stations, skyscrapers), building practice (the rise of professional societies and large corporate firms), and newly remade cities (London, Paris, Vienna) provided a setting for modern life. The course begins with the liberation of the architectural imagination around 1750 and terminates with the rise of modernism at the beginning of the twentieth century (Gropius, Le Corbusier).

Prerequisite(s): ART 105  or ART 106  or permission of the instructor.

Not offered in 2017/18.

Two 75-minute periods.
