Description: This seminar will analyze the essential quality of contemporary built environments - architectural and urban space. The analysis will look at the texts and projects that are indispensable to an understanding of what contemporary space actually is and how it came to dominate the contemporary city over the course of the past century. The second half of the seminar will focus on the unexpected origins of that space in the natural world. Driven by a powerful organic ideal, space emerges as the engine of badly needed reforms in Megalopolis today.
