Through analysis of architectural treatises, prints and drawings, as well as of their production, circulation and reception, this course explores how different figures have thought, discussed and written about architecture from antiquity to contemporary America. It investigates architectural theory’s relationship with practice as well as with contemporary debates on society and fields of knowledge such as literature, music, philosophy and science.  Topics range from the construction of Western canons to developments of the architectural profession.
