History of Modern Architecture 2

Description

The course continues the overview of the history of architecture since the mid-18th century from BSc1 / sem 2. It surveys the time span between 1890 and 1970. Key issues addressed include the attempts from around 1900 onwards to initiate a new beginning for architecture and to establish alternative modes of thinking, breaking with the evolutionary approach of the previous century. We will investigate concepts, arguments and the rhetoric connected with new perceptions of modernity. Positions promoting historico-cultural connections will be explored alongside the outlook of the avant-garde. The breaks and continuities characterizing twentieth century architectural culture will be discussed in this context.
