European Architecture and Urbanism, 1750-1910|
|Course Cluster: Urban Studies|
The course will consider developments in the history and theory of architecture and urbanism, primarily in France, England, and Germany, from the mid-18th through the early 20th century. Architectural culture will be discussed as a response to changing political, economic, technical, and ideological conditions in these national societies. A central theme is the relationship between concepts of both historicism and modernity throughout the period. The study of urbanism will include transformation of existing cities, housing, new towns, colonial capitals, and utopian communities.
Course lectures, discussions, readings and assignments aim to develop the ability to analyze works of architecture and related visual art from a wide range of interpretive perspectives.
