OverviewThe dominant patterns and typologies of western European architecture in the early modern period originate in Italy in the fifteenth century. In the cities and courts of central and northern Italy a virtual laboratory of architectural form generated new typologies of domestic, civic and ecclesiastical architecture. In particular the development of domestic or residential design as a subject of focused architectural endeavour reflects the increasing secularisation of European society. This module aims to introduce students to the formal characteristics of architecture in the period 1400-1700, to examine the relationship of function, form and patronage in architectural design and to consider in particular the development of the villa and palace form.
