20.222 Modernism: Technology and Society in Architecture
Yeo Kang Shua
Studies the essential interrelationships of architectural theory, history, and practice. Examines theoretical investigations not as specialised discourse relating exclusively to architectural production, but as essential and deeply relevant to diverse human social and economic activities, whether they be cultural, aesthetic, philosophical, or professional. Topics and examples are chosen from a wide range of materials, from classical antiquity to contemporary practice. Special topics relating to 21st century urbanization, emerging economies of China and India and ecological and environmental debates will be addressed.
