Subjects covered include Viennese Secessionism, Art Deco, Romantic Revivalism, De Stijl, Bauhaus, International Style, Mid-Century Modernism, Postmodernism, and Contemporary.

Illustrated lectures, readings, and student projects develop an appreciation of the design influences of the twentieth century that inform current developments in the built environment of the twenty-first century.
