GCThis exciting course brings the piazzas, architecture, and ancient artifacts of Italy to your virtual classroom while exploring the common language of architecture and music. This is a course that is designed for all majors and knowledge of architecture or music is not required. We will explore design themes such as harmony, balance, rhythm, and tension and release by comparing designed open spaces, architecture, and musical vocabularies. After taking this course you will understand the beauty and significance of Italy's offerings and become much more interesting at future business/social gatherings. Watch this short video clip to learn more!
