We meet on Zoom every two weeks and cover an introduction to each book, commentary and discuss the main points. Basic questions serve as talking points to facilitate discussion. Suggest a question or schedule change, contact the Art & Architecture Librarian. Open to all students and faculty. Don't worry if you can get through the entire text, be curious and learn from fellow readers.
