Architectural history is more than a stylistic, material, and object-oriented field
of study. The broader context within which a building sits; the spatial conversation
between buildings within public space; the design of streets, transport, and services; and the cultural, economic, and biological processes of people that inhabit and negotiate these spaces – within what we call the ‘urban’ – has always been a fundamental component of the discourse
of architectural history. This course explores how architecture intersects with the idea of the ‘city’ in its various guises through history from the Renaissance to the present day. Students will examine the city as form, system, infrastructure, theatre, ecology, cradle of society, engine
of capital, political surface, producer of national identity, and techno-utopia.
