Hours & Credits
Taught by lectures and building visits, this course is intended to introduce the study of architecture in
both its historical context and its stylistic development. The course will cover buildings in the London area
chronologically, from the beginnings of the Stuart dynasty to the accession of Queen Victoria, dealing mainly
with the rise and development of the classical style in both domestic and public architecture. The classical
style will be studied in greater depth than certain others, partly because of the lavish availability of
monuments, but also so that students may better develop their knowledge of the variety of forms in which that
particular style can appear, and be able to assess the significance of such varieties within that style.
