This course is a general survey of the architecture and urban development of Rome from its beginnings until late antiquity. By studying the city’s monumental center, students will gain an understanding of Rome’s immense cultural legacy in general, and in specific a familiarity with the spatial and topographical vocabulary inherited by the modern urban West. Additionally, by examining the remains of ancient Rome’s infrastructure, they will confront the city as an organic and historical entity.
