This course introduces students to the history of modern architecture since 1800. Beginning with the social and political revolutions of the late-eighteenth century, it examines the formation of an idea of modern architecture shaped by the philosophical framework of the Enlightenment, one that depended on processes of globalization, industrialization and urbanization for its successful realization. Students will study a range of key projects from around the world, along with the debates and manifestoes that have structured architectural discourse in the modern era. Relationships between architecture and other modernist disciplines including literature, the fine arts, music, film, photography, and fashion, will also be considered.
Students must register for both the lecture and discussion section of this course.
