Architecture comprises a diverse and often complex network of histories, manifestos, and philosophies that create a working language. Through a curated progression of architecturally focused written critiques, seminar exercises, drawing assignements, and personal explorations, students are challenged to grapple with and be exposed to contemporary architectural discourse.

Student Learning Outcomes of the Course:
  1. Analyze critical architectural and philosophical texts in order to support conclusions related to specific projects or assignments.
  2. Compare and interpret divergent histories of architecture and the cultural norms of a variety of indigenous, vernacular, local, and regional settings in terms of their political, economic, social, and technological factors.
  3. Generate drawn responses to concepts that synthesize their understanding of readings and discussions
