Instructor: Professor Michael Meister
Jaffe 113
W 3-5 p.m.
Course Description
Intention:This seminar will both instruct you in the remarkable variety of India's architectural accomplishments and encourage you to discuss the broader issue of how architecture can be designed to express meaning. I will ask students to divide into groups to work together on one area of India's architecture. The categories I propose are: 

     Early Indian architecture 
     South Indian architecture 
     North Indian architecture 
     Early Islamic architecture in India 

I will ask you to work collectively, but on different aspects or examples of the general area, reporting in class on the literature, issues, ideas, and substance
appropriate to each.
