Course description

The course aims at establishing a critical approach to the postwar theory and practice of architecture and urban planning within the broader cultural context of contemporary society. We are interested in architecture today designed by contemporary architects and addressed to modern people. In this course we will open our eyes to what is happening around us, the clothes we wear, the music we hear, the food we eat. From the build and digital monuments to the broader achievements of the network communication our aim is to sharpen our look and our critical thinking towards an architectural reality that is constantly evolving and escapes us. We are interested in the activation of a critical awareness of the power and complexity hidden in contemporary architectural practice. The course is fully supported by the use of key texts, multimedia, digital textbooks, literature and films. By critically analyzing the role of the computer in the design of architecture today and by closely examine specific paradigms. Finally, the rigorous and systematic development of student projects, which have the form of illustrated essays in digital format, cultivate the critical and creative analysis of theoretical texts and the original use of visual material.
