History of Photography
History of Photography
In this course we will consider the history of photography as a medium from its inception in 1839 to the present. We will focus on technological advances in photography, aesthetic developments, and the evolution of acceptance of photography as an art form. We will examine the use of photography in different genres, such as landscape, portraiture, and documentation. To illustrate our study, we will rely on examples of photographs available in the Middlebury College Museum of Art. 3 hrs. lect.

Senior Architectural Design II
Thesis in Architectural Studies: Design
This studio course constitutes the second part of the two-term senior design project in Architectural Studies. Building upon the architectural research, analysis, and preliminary design work conducted during the fall semester, students develop their thesis projects to a higher level of understanding and refinement. Students also engage in intense peer review and work with visiting design critics, concluding with public presentations of the final projects, and a project portfolio describing all aspects of the completed design. (HARC 0731) 6 hrs. sem.

Graphic Design: Posters
From Broadsheets to Banners: Poster Design Theory and Practice
Our world is a designed hybrid of text and image. Understanding the constructions that intertwine these component parts is an essential skill, which graphic design explicitly engages. In this course we will explore its history and practice through poster design. This format offers a variety of challenges for beginning designers in its uses of direction, narrative, and illustration, and central to the course will be the history and theory of poster design, mixing research and studio exercises. Each student will choose and research their own topic, and design and exhibit an 18” x 24” poster.

Arch. Design: Micro-Housing
Mircro-Housing: An Introduction to Architectural Design
In this course we will focus on the “tiny house movement.” The need for affordable, energy- efficient, and flexible housing is ever increasing. In urban areas especially, livability and density are in question. Students will design and build models of micro-dwellings, single and multi-unit residences, that address these and other issues. Middlebury alumnus Addison Godine (’11.5) will join as a Cameron Visiting Architect and share his experiences with Middlebury’s 2011 Solar Decathlon house and his latest endeavor: uhu (urban housing unit), the micro-residence he designed to inspire people to live more lightly on the planet. In this course, students will also develop the skills needed to design and represent their architectural concepts. (This course is not open to students who have taken HARC 0130) Students may substitute this course for HARC 0130 in the History of Art & Architecture major

Architectural Fantasies
Architectural Fantasies
How have buildings stirred the imagination and fulfilled specific kinds of desires at specific historical moments? In this course we will consider the often blurred lines and tensions between fantasy and reality in architecture. Class lectures and discussion will consider fantastical architecture in all its forms and as it was ‘realized’ from the Renaissance to the present day across different cultures and media (paper, models, reproductions, etc),Examples include Leonardo da Vinci’s Golden Horn Bridge, Piranesi’s Capriccios and Carceri, Giulio Camillo’s fabled Memory Theater; Boullée’s Cenotaph, Vladimir Tatlin’s Monument to the Third International, world-exposition pavilions, and Archigram’s drawings in the 1970’s, just to name a few.
