ABPL10004 Global Foundations of Architecture

Recommended? No
Available as Breadth? Yes

A relatively dense history subject on pretty much everything you need to know about architecture up to the 1700s. Features quite a bit of stuff you need to remember with moderately-well (read: badly) structured module-based content. Plenty of extra information provided but more work than you’d expect. Look forward to the Graphical Building Analysis assignment and the 3 site visits, but beware of the extensive, dull and often irrelevant weekly readings. Get started on the major essay asap and you should be fine. This subject is a HISTORY subject more than architecture. A lot of work but pretty interesting- head lecturer Philip Goad is a beautiful man with a voice you will learn to love like a child loves their mother.
