Architecture: Architectural Thinking II

ARCH 104

With a broad overview of the buildings and concepts that have shaped the discipline of architecture since the late 1800s – its histories, theories and methodologies – this course surveys the emergence, development and global spread of modern architecture.

A continuation of Introduction to Architectural Thinking I, this is the second in a two-part yearlong sequence developed for undergraduate majors and nonmajors. The overall goal is to provide students with a rigorous working knowledge of key buildings, world developments, texts, concepts and methodologies in architecture by the end of their first year of study. Spanning from the mid-19th century to the early 1970s, modernism is examined, more or less chronologically, through numerous movements (artistic, architectural, cultural, social, political and economic), canonical projects (both built and unbuilt), individuals (artists, architects, designers, engineers, theorists and inventors), and manifestos (written declarations). An exploration of modern architecture’s preoccupation with both past and future, this course not only analyzes famous buildings and their architects, but also the social, political, economic, artistic, technological and intellectual milieu out of which these works emerged.
