CONTENT

During a course of 7 lectures works of art will be analysed in order to discover how artists visualise their way of thinking. Each lecture will pay attention to a specific period in the history of the fine arts. Students will learn how to make a useful analysis of a work of art in order to consider possible relevance in their architectural design.

 

The goal of the lectures is to get inspired by interesting approaches of artists from the classical period up to the present days. Can students A+U possibly be influenced by suggestions, discovered in the history of fine arts, in developing their architectural ideas?
