Course description

History of British Architecture: Meeting ONCE per week, this short course will cover the history of British architecture from the thirteenth century until now. In London we are fortunate to have examples of different British architectural styles from almost all periods, and especially from the middle ages to the present day. This gives us a unique teaching tool for people who want to learn about the history of British architecture - the buildings themselves.

On this eight-week course we will visit different places around London, looking at the architectural history and styles of different buildings, how they relate to each other and to wider historical architectural, social and cultural movements.

These visits will also allow us to learn the language of architectural history and practice, but the overall approach is to be informative, educational and entertaining. It is an opportunity to discover something of the astonishing developments in British architecture over a period of a thousand years, gain an understanding of the history of buildings in London in particular, and see at first hand some of the most beautiful examples of architecture in the world.

No previous knowledge of art history, architecture or history is necessary, but these are site visits so there will be quite a bit of walking around London’s streets. Also, we cannot guarantee the weather, so do bring an umbrella and wear appropriate clothing if the weather forecast looks bad!
