Course content

Critical approach of architectural and urban planning theory and practice of the last forty years, in the wider cultural framework of modern society. In this elusive module we will open our eyes to all the things that happen around us, to the clothes we wear, the music we listen to the way our table is set the paper monuments of the Olympic Games and the digital achievements of the net communication, in order to sharpen our view and our judgement towards to an architectural reality which constantly evolves and escapes from us. The architecture we are interested in today is the one that is created by modern architects for modern people, we are interested in the activation of critical vigilance into the prospect of comprehending the difficulty and complexity of architecture. The module is taught by using complete electronic support and digital manuals, bibliography and links, by critical analysis of the role of computer science in contemporary architecture via off-line analysis of specific examples and by systematic support to students’ assignments, which have an illustrated form in digital layout, which includes word process, stable and moving picture.
