History of Architecture I

by The Ohio State University

This course material is only available in the iTunes U app on iPhone or iPad.

Course Description

Prof. Jacqueline Gargus, Knowlton School of Architecture, Ohio State University.  
History of Architecture I (Arch 5110) is aimed at an audience of architecture students and traces thematic arcs to provide a conceptual overview of architectural history from pre-history through the nineteenth century. The intent is not to develop an historical or art historical argument, but rather to provide insight into the formal structure and technological challenges of the built environment. The ambition is to develop strategies that will help young architects make design decisions and better appreciate the richness of the material world as well as to understand the political and social implications of every architectural act.

Concepts Articulated

Good overall introduction to topic. Some careless typos/misspellings in slides. And the Odyssey, please, is not about the Golden Fleece.

Entertaining and humorous

A great lecture to refresh my memory an expose me to some new ideas.


I've been viewing this course and totally love the professor's lecture style. I've loved learning about the history of architecture, and love when the professor steps back from her lecture and expresses a "FABULOUS!" She has my complete attention as I take in her lectures. Is there a History of Architecture II ("2" or "two")? If so, sign me up!!
