Honors College at the TTU Center in Sevilla
This program has been cancelled for summer 2018. If you have any questions, please contact Professor Joe Aranha.
What can be learnt about lifestyle, beliefs, values, traditions and other aspects of a society by experiencing and understanding its architecture? How do factors such as culture, history, climate, technology and materials shape buildings and give identity and character to a city? The city of Seville in southern Spain will be the classroom where students will study and learn answers to these questions within the context of Spain. Living with a host family; drinking a coffee in a street café; spending an evening biking along the river; hanging out on a weekend night in a plaza away from the tourist attractions; strolling through a local neighborhood market; or visiting a building that was formerly a convent or a ceramics factory, together with excursions to Granada, Cordoba and elsewhere in the region, students will get ‘hands-on' opportunities to experience architecture, observe how people use the city, discuss issues, and be introduced to ideas and physical conditions, both past and present that have contributed to the unique identity of one of Spain's most historic, vibrant and beautiful cities.
No previous experience is required, but an enthusiastic openness for new experiences is essential.
