ICYA-1200A Human History of Large Projects

Large construction projects constitute one of the most important forms of expression in history. Critical to their creation and development are the configuration and adjustment of means for adapting them to different contexts, which makes them significant for different disciplines. This course is the result of work and courses in the areas of history and theory of architecture, urban infrastructure, settlement processes and urban evolution, construction, and the history of construction techniques. The discussion of the evolution of construction will support the formation of an interdisciplinary context that will develop an interrelation between thinking and technique over time and across space.
