Lavishly illustrated with 400 images, this study group covers 200,000 years of architecture in the Western Hemisphere from prehistoric times to today. The evolution of architecture is traced through basic theory of architectural design to associated disciplines of structural design and a broad palette of applied arts. We will discuss the challenges that all buildings must meet to qualify as architecture. Some revelations about Canadian Indigenous architecture are included.
