Arch457: Architecture 20th c. and Beyond
Winter Q, ‘18
This is an architectural history course on architecture since 1889 up to today, mainly but not solely in the West. It will trace the roots of Modernism in Europe in the late 19th c., the spread of Modernism across the globe, its collapse and subsequent movements (PostModernism, Deconstruction, etc.), bringing the discussion up to issues of sustainability, biodesign, and The Return to Ornamentation in the past several years. I will be using a newly published textbook by the British architect Colin Davis, which casts the subject in slightly different light from the course in the past. Format consists of informal lectures twice weekly, required reading, two short papers, and two exams.
