The course is organized into three modules. The first module, “Histories of the Present,” traces the history of architectural discourses from the Enlightenment to the present. The second module, “Architecture as Space,” focuses on particular themes and investigates the history of these themes through examples of contemporary architecture. The final module, “Architecture as Utopia,” examines the contemporary relevance of modern architecture’s historical aspiration to change society. The goal is as much to raise questions about architectural debates as to answer them. COURSE OBJECTIVES: 1. to introduce the profession, discipline, and culture of architecture 2. to familiarize students with some critical issues in contemporary architectural discourses 3. to present the history of architectural modernism as continuous from the Enlightenment to the present 4. to develop critical thinking and writing skills
