Art & Art History 161 | St. Olaf College
This course examines architectural monuments and their symbolic forms combined with evidence of earthly and divine concepts. From cave dwellings to geodesic domes, from Eastern to Western systems, students review sacred and profane structures from a variety of cultures. Our goal in this class is to investigate the many interactions between culture and architecture created by professionals, tradesmen, and ordinary people. Each student will investigate a living reality of space, function, and form found in human-built environments.
