Global Medieval Architecture

Alexander Kane Harper

Back to "Spring 2018" courses

This course is a survey of architecture from the Middle Ages, a term used here to denote the period between 500 CE and 1500 CE. Global in both geographical scope (e.g. Europe, Africa, and Asia) and buildings surveyed, this course examines various architectural forms, techniques, and priorities across multiple landscapes. Organized by building type, the course is broadly comparative while examining buildings on their own terms. Subjects include palaces, castles, and fortress; roads and infrastructure; water architecture; houses and other domestic spaces; and urban planning and design.
