ARTS 273 - Architecture of Art Museums
Offers a critical and historical exploration of art museum architecture since the French Revolutionary era. Emphasis is on museums since World War II, but students also become familiar with iconic museums of the 19th and early 20th Centuries, such as the Altes Museum in Berlin, the British Museum in London and the Boston Museum of Fine Arts. As a way of gaining a robust understanding of spatial design factors, students model a historical museum using CAD software before designing a gallery installation using the same software.
