|Subject Overview:||A study of some formative aspects of Near Eastern and European architecture and urbanism from ancient origins to the late Middle Ages. Detailed studies of various periods within this broad spectrum are made, exploring issues of spatial organisation, construction, architectural theory, architectural grammar, and their physical, social and economic contexts. The European tradition in the design of the built environment is explored, by establishing an overall cultural framework within which an individual building or place can be located and assessed; and by the development of skills in information gathering and critical synthesis, essay and report writing, and visual and oral presentation techniques required for the independent interpretation of these insights|
|Assessment:||An essay, class papers, exercises (drawn or written), equivalent to not more that 3000 words (50%); a visual test (15%), and a two-hour examination (35%) |
