Please join us for a free webinar as we explore the evolution of French Architecture from 1750 - 1850 and the development of the Neo-Classical style. This period heralded a time of enormous change, from the beginning of the Enlightenment through the discovery of modern materials in the nineteenth century. These materials revolutionized construction and forever changed the development of architectural form. Movements discussed will include Romanticism, the Roman, Greek, and Gothic Revivals, Functionalism and Rationalism. This course will explore the philosophies behind these movements at the Ecole des Beaux Arts, and the influences of archaeology, literature, and the allied arts.

Advanced registration required! Registration will close 30 minutes prior to start of webinar.
