Theory and Criticism of Contemporary Architecture (MSTAA)

Description

This course will address the ways in which the field of architecture theorized openness, from the 1960s to the 1990s, both as a design question about unfinished structures and a cross-disciplinary question about unstable content. Each session will focus on one building (lectures), or pairs of projects and buildings (seminars), and will scrutinize in turn the questions they raised, the arguments they advanced, the critiques they entailed, the techniques they mobilized, and the notions of authorship they implied. Ultimately, the course will trace the trajectories of openness as a design question.
