Declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1979, Antigua presents valuable lessons in Classical Architecture and traditional urbanism applicable to the design of new buildings today. In this lecture, participants will explore the city of Antigua and study its urban form, as well as select public and private buildings: from their relationship to the public realm, to its architectural intricacies.The course will begin with a general overview of Antigua’s history, followed by the urban form that laid the foundation for the next four centuries, and its connection to the Laws of Indies that were enacted later by the Spanish Monarchy for the foundation of new towns in Spanish America. Following an urban analysis, students will review three buildings: a public building, a convent, and a private house. In this review, architectural drawings and photographs will be shown to further study their architectural finesse.This course will be held virtually via Zoom.
