    Brief description of the subject: 

    The architecture of Early Modern Era aims to introduce the history of universal Renaissance and Baroque architecture into the course of chronologically interdependent architecture history courses of the Department. Drawing on earlier studies of Ancient Classical and Medieval architecture, the subject explores the architectural principles, spatial trends, major building types, and most significant artists of Renaissance and Baroque architecture that originated in Italy and evolved in Europe. Based on the results of architectural research, the way it is negotiated also places great emphasis on the issues of space design, space management and space use, in accordance with the specific needs of architectural education. In the practical lessons, that form an integral part of the subject, a specific sub-area of the problem, the question of shaping the building facade, comes to the fore. New buildings of the Early Modern Era, designed in the spirit of Antique architecture to follow their forms but designed for different building functions, have resulted in new solutions that have continued to play an important role in historical architectural trends.
