Summary
    Introduction to Architecture: Global Disciplinary Knowledge provides students with a holistic exploration of the history of architectural discourse. The anthology features select readings in architectural theory, which are supplemented by clear introductory remarks to help guide students through critical concepts and themes. The book expands the repertoire of traditional Euro-American based theory anthologies by presenting texts from an explicitly global perspective. It engages a diverse range of debates on the built environment throughout history and around the world.

    The collection addresses the what, how, and why of architecture and architectural theory, specifically addressing the following questions: What is architecture? What are the ideas behind some of the most significant buildings in history? How does architecture manifest cultural values and aspirations in different contexts? Why is all of this important in the first place? To answer these questions, the anthology offers students readings on architectural thought and theory from some of the most renowned and revered architects and theorists of their time. The text also provides students with case studies and images of exemplary buildings to help them connect the dots between theoretical concepts and constructed works of architecture.

    Designed to serve as a supplementary text, Introduction to Architecture is a cross-disciplinary anthology well suited for foundational courses in architectural history, architecture, theory of architecture, cultural studies, anthropology, and urban studies.

    An architectural theorist, historian, and practitioner, Joseph Godlewski earned Ph.D. and M.S. degrees in architectural history and theory from the University of California, Berkeley. He is an assistant professor at the Syracuse University School of Architecture, where he teaches courses in theory and design. His writing has been featured in various forums including CLOG, The Plan Journal, MONU, ArchDaily.com, Traditional Dwellings and Settlements Review, and the book The Dissertation: An Architecture Student's Handbook. He’s a member of the Global Architectural History Teaching Collaborative (GAHTC).
