In this course, students gain insight into the political, ideological, artistic and philosophical contexts of architecture, urban planning and landscape in the first half of the 20th century.
Students develop skills in how critical analyses, theoretical strands or approaches can be derived from the positions presented.
This academic year, the lectures Architectural Theory 2 and M will focus on Austria. The central focus is on continuities in Austrian culture, as expressed in three important avant-gardes – the Fin de Siècle, the interwar period and the fifties and sixties.
The course will be held in English.
