This course by Lester Wertheimer, FAIA, deals with the ideas and examples which have established the architectural tradition of the Western world. Although there is no written test specifically on this subject, architectural history questions are included in many sections of the exam. The seven lessons review the theories, influences, characteristics, and major monuments from ancient times through the 20th century, including:
* Ancient architecture
* Greek and Roman architecture
* Medieval architecture
* Renaissance architecture
* Roots of modern architecture
* American architecture
* 20th century architecture
* Checklist of significant 20th century structures
The course is attractively illustrated with numerous sketches, plans, and diagrams, and enhanced by a glossary, bibliography, and an extensive index. A short review quiz follows each lesson, and the course concludes with a major examination. Complete explanations of all quiz and examination answers are included.
