ARCH 3113 Architecture Culture III - 1850 through 1945
Pre-Req ARCH 3116
A continuation of the Architecture Culture series, additionally examining the relationship between architecture and other cultural discourses such as philosophy, aesthetics, science, religion, politics and technology. While continuing in the aim of developing an understanding of how architecture manifests the socio-cultural conditions of a given moment in aesthetic form, it takes as its central concern the search for a definition of 'Modernity', and how it might be translated into a style. Particular attention is paid to the various 'isms' of the Modern Movement and the key historical figures that shaped them.
