History of Greek architecture from the Archaic through the Hellenistic periods (8th-1st centuries B.C.). This course will provide a chronological survey of the Greek architectural tradition from the Iron Age, marked by the construction of the first all-stone temples, to the reigns of the successors of Alexander the Great, when the Greeks founded new towns in places as far away from Athens as Afghanistan. The illustrated lectures and readings will present the major monuments and building types, as well as such related subjects as city-planning and urbanism, building methods, and traditions of architectural patronage. The course will conclude with a consideration of the heritage of Greek architecture from the Roman period to the present.
