Students in LdM’s Architecture Department explore the history of architecture, landscape, and urban form from antiquity to modern times, with specific emphasis on Florence and Tuscany. Courses analyze the different sources and forms of architectural expression through the centuries while looking at the effects of architecture and the built environment from a broader social and cultural context.
