Environmental History and Theory: Building Environments

Tulay Atak
Architecture, Architecture
2024S, Vorlesungen (VO), 2.0 ECTS, 2.0 semester hours, course number S04598

Description

Environmental history and theory provides a way to consider architecture in relation to histories of energy, extraction, infrastructure, production, supply chain and labor. The environmental lens on history is a way to encompass all the elements of the built world (people, place, technology),  allowing for making connections across a variety of scales from building details to cities. Environmental history and theory provide ways to consider architecture’s disciplinarity, how research is defined in architecture and how architecture incorporates knowledge from other disciplines. It offers a vantage point where the limits of the discipline come into view, where new affinities can be drawn and articulated, and where we can ask the question, “how do we know what we know?” and “what can we do with what we know?

 

This semester, we will focus on architectural texts, projects and work which take environment as their subject and analyze the relation between architecture and the environment in selected case studies.
