Class Title Architecture and Modernity: Building the 19th and 20th Centuries
Description This course surveys the history of architecture in modernism and in relation to discourses of 19th- and 20th - century modernity. On the one hand, we look at ideas about modernism in European and American culture from early in the 19th c: on the other, we examine progressive modernization in a range of arenas, all related to the build environment. From 19th c. beginnings in new building types and social institutions, until the end of the 20th c., we will consider how architects, engineers, planners, and developers have responded to the challenges wrought by industrialization and post-Enlightenment thought.
