UMA’s Bachelor of Architecture is excited to share a new introduction to architecture course for non-majors. This course, currently under consideration to meet a gen ed fine arts requirement, will be a wide-ranging introduction to the study and practice of architecture for anyone interested in considering studying architecture or looking for an innovative and creative elective class. It is a fast-paced hands-on course in which we will draw, sketch, and make during class time, mirroring elements of design studio practice. Topics will include the design profession, architectural history, color theory, house and shelter design, and many others. This will be a fast-passed exciting introduction, perfect for anyone with an interest in our built environment and learning more about the forces that shape it.

The course will be taught by Professor Rob Anderson who completed his Master of Arts in History and Theory from the Architectural Association (AA) in London (UK), received a Bachelor of Architecture from the Boston Architectural College (US), and a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Massachusetts College of Art and Design (US).

The class will be online in real-time for Spring 2021, Tuesdays from 9 – 11:45.
