Program Description This intensive eight week course of study is designed not only to introduce students to important architectural and urban artifacts in Paris, Florence, and Venice, but also to examine the cultural context that shapes and informs them. Structured as a carefully calculated mix of old and new, students undertake filed study of canonic buildings and urban spaces in western thought about architecture, while simultaneously exploring cultural themes around the conflicts of modernism and heritage. Excursions to Lyon and La Tourette follow similar themes. A design studio component in Paris is offered as an option.
