ARCH 3823 - Urban Design, Architecture, and Art in Renaissance and Baroque Rome

Fall, spring. 3 credits.

Prerequisites: ARCH 1801  and ARCH 1802 , or permission of instructor. Not offered every year. Offered in Rome.

J. Blanchard.

Offered on-site at Cornell in Rome, this course focuses on the Renaissance and Baroque phases (15th-18th centuries) of Rome’s history. The first class sessions will survey the city’s urban history and form from its origins to the present, and we will often turn our attention to earlier and later developments, without an understanding of which the Renaissance and Baroque periods would be only partially intelligible. While the history of urban and architectural design will be our main focus, we will also look at key episodes of painting and sculpture, especially by artists who are also among the principal  architects of these periods (Michelangelo, Bernini).
