Description

Theory of Arch 1 presents a survey of architectural theory from around 1945 to this day, with emphasis on contemporary developments since the nineties including formalism, postmodernism and digital design as well as the impact that cultural theories and movements like feminism, environmentalism and decolonization have made on architectural thought. The course will trace the transformation of architectural ideas, articulate the links between specific examples and their social and cultural contexts, deepen the theoretical underpinnings of architectural form and map how the field of architecture can expand in order to address contemporary questions and diverse audiences. The course will consist of lectures and discussion. 

Examination Modalities

The students will be expected to complete the weekly readings, participate in class discussions and complete the semester assignment in a timely manner.
