MARCH-6220: Architectural Theory

Course Description

Architecture Theory explores the key concepts that drive critical, reflective, and innovative practices within architecture from roughly 1968 to today. The course provides an introductory exploration into both western and non-western concepts that posit thinking and writing as an integral part of the discipline. Students read from texts within the architectural discipline or non-architectural texts that hold a powerful influence over it. This course focuses on the development of methods of critical inquiry, comprehension, and writing skill and the translation of theory into various forms of architectural representation.
