East Asian Architecture

Topics in East Asian Architecture
In this course we will survey the architecture of East Asia through a series of comparative case studies, placing particular emphasis upon the function of architecture within major cultural movements, as well as its role in the definition and spread of culture. Major topics will include religious, vernacular, and state architecture; landscape architecture; urbanism; representations of architecture and architectural space; architectural design and construction; and early modern, colonial, modern, and contemporary architecture. Through these topics, we will explore what may be learned through architecture about social, cultural, and political history, contemporary life, and the human experience. 3 hrs. lect.
