HUM 417 / ART 408 / CEE 415

Historical Structures: Ancient Architecture’s Materials, Construction and Engineering

Branko Glisic and Michael Koortbojian

Back to "Fall 2022" courses

The students will pursue inquiry beyond the conventional boundaries of the two respective disciplines (ART and CEE): to learn and master relevant elements of structural engineering and to understand, appreciate, and solve myriad problems of realization of large structural works, including their design, structural analysis, and construction; and, concomitantly, to pursue a fully historical contextualization of architectural structures, including the technological developments, sociological aspects, and aesthetic traditions in which these monuments find their place. Students will work in mixed groups and collaborate on their course projects.

Rising Seniors, Juniors and Sophomores may apply to enroll in this course which is limited to 15 students. 

Applications will be accepted under the course is closed; for full consideration, please submit by April 18.
