Renaissance Architecture

Renaissance Architecture
A selective survey of Italian architecture from the inception of the great dome in Florence to the completion of that at St. Peter’s in Rome. In this course we will examine the works of major 15th and 16th century masters (Brunelleschi, Alberti, Bramante, Michelangelo, Palladio), conceptual approaches (perspective, classicism, neo-platonism, mannerism), and centers (Florence, Milan, Rome, Venice) to understand their potency for their time and as models for architectural production ever since. 3 hrs. lect.
