ARCHITECTURAL ANALYSE

2 analyser

Learn how to analyze an architectural work

This course is an introduction to the great eternal concepts of architecture. They enable to understand and describe an architectural work, whatever its nature (housing, theater, school, library, etc.), and the place and time at which it was built.
NB: Although the knowledge of the different architectural styles is essential for the analysis of a building, this area has already been treated many times in many books. This is why we will not discuss them in these courses, the aim of which is to convey to you a knowledge that transcends places and times, and which is difficult to find outside schools of architecture.
