This year the department is offering more First-Year Seminars and summer courses.
In Summer 2021, Brown University Architect Craig Barton will offer a First-Year Seminar “Constructing Memory: The Design of Monuments in the Public Realm,” about cities, people, and what we choose to recognize and commemorate through the construction of monuments and memorials in the public realm. In addition, Evelyn Lincoln offers her FYS, “Illustrating Knowledge,” and Dietrich Neumann will be teaching an undergraduate seminar, “Mies van der Rohe: An Architect and his Time,” based on his newly published books about that architect. Professor of the Practice Julian von der Schulenburg will teach “Introduction to Studio" for those interested in studio architecture.
HIAA courses gathered around thematic groups
We have gathered many of our course offerings for Spring and Summer into thematic groups to show some patterns of general interest in thinking about why we paint, sculpt, print and build in different time periods, areas of the world, and media. These will change from semester to semester. Below are themes we've selected for the spring and summer courses offered in 2021. Click on the themes to find courses around the thematic area.
