Throughout the Twentieth Century, architects asked, "What are the relationships of my work to philosophy, science, religion, ecology, politics, cyberspace, gender, literature, aesthetics, economics, history, culture, and technology." In this seminar students will explore case studies helping order to understand the complex factors at play today in the creation of architecture. In addition to group study of case studies in architectural, landscape and urban design, students will also read critically primary and secondary sources, keep a Process Folio, give short reports, and develop an independent research project on a design of their choice.
