Curriculum & Course Descriptions

The eighteen credit curricular structure consists of seven professional credits in Architectural Design & Urban Studies. Emphasis is placed on the analysis of an urban area of historic significance, and the development of an architectural response or intervention within an existing, ancient context.
The program also includes a three credit course in sketching which extends drawing, this time of urban form, as a means of "seeing" in a more intense way; a three credit course in Italian which treats not only language but also issues of history, culture, and film; two courses in the history of art and architecture, one dealing with the antique and medieval monuments and the other with Renaissance and Baroque; and a two credit course in the history of modern Italian architecture "from Piranesi to the Present".

Special Events

Guest lectures and Master Classes are an integral part of the program. Scheduled regularly and held at Pratt Studios, lecturers are selected from among important international historians, theoreticians, and practitioners, and have included, in recent years, Manfredo Tafuri, Christian Norberg-Schulz, and Aldo Rossi. In addition, office visits and discussions will be scheduled throughout the semester to introduce program participants to leading European architects and encourage interaction between our students and the Roman Architectural community.

Course offerings may be taken for graduate credit. See program coordinator for information.
