Indigenous Precedents

This course makes explicit the idea of precedent as buildings and settlements become increasingly complex. Case studies are drawn from indigenous architecture as well as from other relevant building traditions. Particular emphasis is placed on precedents that draw upon indigenous cultures from the northern and southern hemispheres as they relate to the design of contemporary buildings and shared social settings. The course aims to increase knowledge regarding precedent (i.e typologies and building forms) that will inform the Design studio sequence. Prereq.: ARCH 2036
