Description: This course will trace the development of Renaissance and Baroque architecture in Italy and France with reference to the dialectic of license and rule. The first part, which covers the period from 1400-1600, will focus on the civil, domestic, and ecclesiastical architecture of the chief protagonists of the Italian Renaissance: Brunelleschi, Alberti, Bramante, Giulio Romano, Michelangelo and Palladio. Their buildings and urban initiatives will be interpreted in terms of continuities & discontinuities between an emerging theoretical tradition and the demands of actual practice.
