ARCH11-114: World Architecture and Urbanism

Description

This subject covers the history of world architecture and urbanism from the early days of humans as builders until most recent architectural phenomena today. Because the second semester subject, entitled Architecture and Urbanism of the Asia Pacific, focuses on that part of the world, this first semester subject is mainly concerned with architecture in the other regions. 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.
