Understanding Architecture


Architecture shapes our lives and forms our imaginations in ways we often do not fully appreciate. Places of work, learning, worship, and living do more than provide space for our activities. They deeply impact they way we understand and undertake them. This seminar will introduce students to some basic ideas about the nature of architecture and the judgements we make about it. It will pay particular attention to the way that architecture can be said to “imitate” (or fail to imitate) nature. This seminar consists of lectures, illustrated by slides. There is no reading. Pizza will be served.

Dates: Wednesdays on 10/30, 11/6, 11/13
Time: 5:30-7:00pm

Location:  2134 Allston Way

**This seminar is free and open to all Cal, GTU, and St. Mary’s students.
