Section Information for Fall 2017

This course will trace the history of modern architecture in the Western world from the mid-19th century to the present. We will explore this history through key movements such as Art Nouveau, Futurism, Modernism, and Post-Modernism; influential architectural designers and theorists, from Louis Sullivan to Le Corbusier; and enduring issues such as gender, class, race, and technology. We will look closely at major modern monuments, while also placing these and other vernacular architectural developments within their changing urban contexts. Our aim will be to gain a more nuanced understanding of the modern built environment alongside evolving political, social, and cultural currents.
