Architecture of the Russian Empire, 1815-2020

Description

This course will take a look at architectures from countries and regions surrounding today’s Russia in order to reflect on the different ways in which the region’s complex history has become reflected in its buildings and projects. The collapse of the Soviet Union in the early 1990s has led scholars and wider publics to re-think the ways in which the “Eastern Block” is perceived. Rather than a monolithic political and cultural phenomenon, varied movements, factions, ideas, interests, and events have been recognized alongside their nuanced interactions with one another. One of the ways in which these processes became manifested can be observed in architecture, with politics of identity and dynamics of cultural diplomacy acquiring a material representation. This course will provide students with an introduction to some of these projects and to the recent scholarship on the subject.
