ARCH-2301
ARCH-2301 Theory and History of Architecture 2 (3) (S) The second Theory and History of Architecture course addresses the development of architecture from early modernity, that is the Renaissance, through contemporary post-modernity and contemporary architectural critiques of modernistic approaches. The course attends to the practice of the Western language of classical architecture and the prodigious, eloquent history of architectural theory. Respecting our curricular and institutional mission, the course aims for a modest history rather than historicism and a recognition of greater realities than materialism. This course is required for the architecture major. (AE, WC)

ARCH-3310
ARCH-3310 Theory and History: Field Study (2) (SU) As there can be no substitute for first-hand, field study of buildings and places, this course follows the three-hundred-year practice amongst architects to study the most instructive examples of architecture and urbanism in the Western tradition. These buildings and places are studied for the achievement of beauty, as an outworking of the true and the good, that includes the continuing affirmation of these places as the most livable and the most sustainable built environments. This course will require reading, close observation that includes field-drawing documentation, analytical drawing, discussion, and a summative written report. Prerequisite: ARCH-2112.

THEO-2144
THEO-2144 Liturgical Art & Architecture (3) (B) This course examines the meanings and expressions of Catholic liturgical art and architecture, understanding them as bearers of sacramental realities which participate in the glorification of God and the sanctification of the world. The following are examined and discussed: foundational sacramental theology, sacred scripture, the classical inheritance, sacred images, recent artistic trends and sacramental aesthetics as known in the Christian East and West, particularly through the theology of the icon. Particular attention is given to the tradition of Catholic architecture through the centuries, theological movements, and recent gestures toward a reintegration of tradition in new design. Prerequisite: THEO-1100. (AE, F, VC)
