ARCH71-135: Architecture and Urbanism of Asia Pacific

Description

This subject covers the history of world architecture and urbanism from the early days of humans as builders till most recent architectural phenomena today. Because the first semester subject, entitled World Architecture and Urbanism, focuses on other areas, this second semester subject is mainly concerned with architecture in Asia and the Pacific region, including Australia. The goal in examining aesthetic concepts; philosophical, social and environmental issues; vernacular typologies and indigenous cultures; materials; construction methods; as well as evolution of science and technology, is to provide a framework for critical evaluations and analyses of architectural and urban design. There is strong emphasis on linking the discussed, interrelated examples and theories with the cultural, social and environmental imperatives of the 21st century. Significant concepts, works, architects, planners, and contexts are highlighted for precedent studies and future referrals in order to develop the students’ design thinking skills.
