Part one: (Tue, September 13, 2022 from Noon to 1:30pm ET.)

How we think about the modern concept of architecture, in part, stems from Vitruvius's account of the philosophy, education, and practice of the architect in Augustan Rome. We can examine Vitruvius's work within the context of his contemporary Roman world—itself a famous crucible of change and innovation in the reign of Augustus after years of civil war. We'll look at concrete building examples that Vitruvius himself would have observed. We'll also look at contemporary architects and Vitruvius' constructions.
