A survey of Mexican architecture from its origins in pre-Columbian times to the  21st century.

Objectives: This course is devoted to the study of Mexican architecture and place making.  Architecture will be understood as a cultural expression intricately connected to its historical context and the landscape that supports it. Mexican Architecture is recognized worldwide as a cultural expression with distinctive and significant contributions to the global realm of architecture. What are those contributions? This course doesn’t aim to cover exhaustively Mexican architecture.  The objective is to present the most interesting contributions of Mexican architecture to the world of architecture in general,  focusing on the most significant ideas, places and architects that have shaped Mexican architecture and urbanism during the pre-Columbian and Colonial periods, and all the way to the 21st century.
