Course Content

Addressed to question a common ground for reading works of art and architecture referring to certain philosophical arguments-perceiving architecture as art, as a cultural product, not only a built product but also a product of thought and ideas. Theory of Regionalism will help to clarify the historical and intellectual reasonings in the gradual formation of today`s attitudes in reading and understanding of architectural works.
