DAB200 Modern Architecture

This unit explores the global movement of modern architecture from its European roots. As many contemporary architects state, the movement still influences architecture and theory and this unit will enable you to locate contemporary global architecture within a framework of rich, complex and interconnected cultural, societal and historical contexts and traditions. You will acquire the facility to read seminal texts, to begin to understand your own design projects in an historical context, and to engage with the global architectural debates which inform architecture today. This unit is part of the history and theory stream in architectural studies. As an architect, you should be able to analyse developments in architectural history from multiple perspectives. Following on from DYB112 Spatial Materiality and DYB114 Spatial Histories, this unit  explores and critically examines significant issues, influential individuals and exemplary works of the modern movement.
