ARCH 603 – Reading: Architectural Theory

Description

Reading: Architectural Theory focuses on a significant text within the development of architectural theory, selected for its historical value and potential for revisited contemporary relevance. Participants read (a chapter-by-chapter reading of the main text, with additional materials considered as necessary), contribute to the seminar discussions, and write weekly one-page responses as well as a final paper as a “late” book review. 

 

Texts previously read in this course include Theories and History of Architecture by Manfredo Tafuri (1968), The Language of Post-Modernism by Charles Jencks (1977), and Collage City by Colin Rowe and Fred Koetter (1978).

 

The text for Reading in fall 2019 will be Delirious New York: A Retroactive Manifesto by Rem Koolhaas (1977).
