In this one-hour course, we will review the history of columns to see how they have evolved from a means of solely providing physical support for buildings to adding light to a room or providing a timeless, contemporary piece of architecture with varied purposes. After investigating the different materials that columns are made of, we will discuss the advantages and disadvantages of each material type. We will also explore the manufacturing and installation process of each material as well as discuss problems associated with sub-standard manufacturing or improper installation.
