ARTH 47.02 Modern Architecture

Architectural historians disagree about the origins of the modern era. For many, “modern” suggests principally the built works of the twentieth century. Others find the great projects of the nineteenth-century industrial revolution a more suitable place to begin. Still others—as will we—push the beginnings of “modern” architectural thought and practice back to the late eighteenth century. In this way we place architectural transformation in the context of the great changes taking place in the political, artistic, social and intellectual life of the period. This course approaches architecture as a cultural product and investigates the relationship between buildings, the ideas embodied in buildings and the cultures that designed them. We will chart the history of modern design from the Age of Enlightenment to the present.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
