I took both ARCH & UD 10A and 10B with Sebastiano in preparation for applying to the Architectural Studies major. Sebastiano is a PhD candidate, so he is relatively new to lecturing and teaching students the material. Despite this, he does make an effort to engage students with the material through his use of detailed architectural vocabulary and genuine interest in the subject. Lecture can be quite boring at times, but at its core, the buildings and themes discussed are very intriguing. 10A focuses primarily on architectural history up to the Baroque, while 10B examines architecture from the end of the Baroque to Postmodernism. 10A and 10B both view architecture as a cultural production and use this lens in its examination of buildings. Both classes do not require a textbook and are largely based off of lectures. Grading is relatively simple; 35-40% is from reading responses, 15-20% is from the midterm, and the remaining percentage is from attendance in discussion and the final. The class should be a cake walk if you are good at memorization and can learn basic architectural vocabulary. All the TAs are great! I had Megan Meulemans for 10A and Kyle Stover for 10B. Both were wonderful and extremely knowledgeable. Put in a bit of effort, and this class will leave you with a greater understanding and appreciation of architecture.
