Required work and form of assessment:
- First Midterm Exam (30%): The first midterm exam will consist on 4 powerpoint images of a building or a painting already seen in class. The student will have to answer briefly questions about its function, meaning and style, and the historical conditions in which it was produced.
- Paper (30%): At the end of the term students will deliver a paper analyzing an architectural or pictorical example of their choice.
- Final Exam (40%): The final exam will be very much like the first one: 4 powerpoint images of a building or a painting already seen in class. Students will have 10 minutes for each image and should analyze style (composition, volume, color, light, and the treatment of space) and iconography (function, meaning and the context in which it was created).
