ARCH 4140 - Modernity in Culture and Architecture

An exploration of the idea of modernity as both a cultural phenomenon (extending back to Enlightenment ideas of progress, technological enframing of the world, scientific rationality, historical consciousness, etc.) and as an artistic/architectural discourse unfolding in the 20th century as a radical requestioning of all traditional concepts of program, construction, and aesthetics. As such, this is both a theory and a history course.

When Offered: Spring term annually.

Credit Hours: 4
