ARTH 100
Classical Architecture
Instructor: Professor Haselberger
M 3-6

Comparing and contrasting outstanding examples of Greek and Roman architecture-single buildings as well as larger architectural compositions and city plans-forms the focus of this freshman seminar. Special emphasis will be laid on the guiding principles of these structures and the diverse, or common, Greek and roman approaches to comparable building tasks (such as temples, theaters, market places, fortifications, city plans). Methodological 'tools' for these analyses will be discussed and a broader historical context developed. Field trips to the Second Bank Building and the Art Museum in Philadelphia. No Prerequisites.
