Description: "Architectural Revolution" has been tied to Le Corbusier, the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, Brunelleschi and to towering Gothic cathedrals. At the foundation of all these endeavors is the Concrete Revolution in Roman Architecture. In this course we'll look at the four essential elements of this revolution from the fourth century BCE to the fifth century CE, and we'll investigate how shifts in application and experience created a background that informs design to this day. Cross-list: ARCH 326, HART 326.
