CS2022 | History of Architecture 3: Industrial Revolution
to Contemporary Discourses
This class presents a history of 20th century architecture and urbanism, from 19th century tectonics and structural rationalism to the emergence of deconstruction and the contemporary avant-garde. The course examines critical mo?ments in the creative and intellectual discourses that have arisen over the course of the century, a time in which the discipline of Architecture has endured innu?merable theoretical debates that forged an ever-greater reliance upon theoreti?cal sources and visual knowledge. Among the issues discussed are the rise of industrial production of new technologies and mass urbanization.
