Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

This course provides a deeper look at the development of architecture and architectural theory, with an emphasis on the twentieth century but with a look back at the eighteenth and nineteenth as well. We study the historiography of modern architecture, and the course reflects on how we can broaden our perspectives in the writing of history and the models we use for analysis. We also address urban planning issues, with particular emphasis on the relation between modernity and urbanism. The course illuminates architectural practice and theories from various perspectives, including politics, gender, class, ethnicity, media, and consumption.

The course is divided into two parts.
