ARCH 325 - History of Modern Architecture


Prerequisites: AAH 121 -AAH 122  or URBN 100  or permission of instructor
This course on modern architecture examines buildings, cities, and landscapes in relation to the visual arts, culture, politics, and technological and social change. It begins with the origins of modern architecture in Western Europe, and continues with an exploration of key 19th-century architects and theorists. It highlights the 20th-century avant-gardes and concludes with the crystallization of modern architecture in the West and around the world. The course seeks to explain the modern not only as a visual phenomenon, but also as an intellectual, philosophical, and cultural idea.
