Description: This third course in the required History and Theory of Architecture sequence surveys the history and theory of architecture and urbanism between 1890 and 1968, tracing the critical shifts in architectural thought and practice that inaugurated, constituted, and questioned architectural modernism. Organized around a series of significant case studies considered particular designed responses to their material, intellectual, and sociopolitical context, the course elucidates the influence of contingent conditions on architectural design, but emphasizes the designer's efforts to reinforce, reform, or transform those conditions. While non-majors are welcome, availability is determined by the instructor. Cross-list: ARCH 646, HART 506. Mutually Exclusive: Cannot register for ARCH 346 if student has credit for ARCH 336/ARCH 536/ARCH 646.
