- Sutcliffe, Anthony. Paris: An Architectural History, 1993 (now Out of Print. Try to find a used copy (UBkStore may have); copies are also on reserve in the Arch Lib)
- Horne, Alistair. Seven Ages of Paris, 2004 (ppbk edition, available at UBkStore)
Other required readings:
Additional readings, some required, most only recommended, are on reserve mostly in the Architecture Library. Reading assignments are uneven in length, and competition for books is likely to be keen especially around exam times, so plan ahead. Also, as the lecture format is informal, the schedule may change. Best come to class.
Required readings except for texts are available on this Canvas course site under the Readings link above; all books from which the essays are selected are available in the Arch Lib in Gould if you'd prefer to use a library copy.
