The course will analyze major contemporary architectural ideas, ideologies, and projects in the context of both globalization and specific local contexts. We’ll trace the development of architecture since the early 90s by discussing the work of some of the most influential architects of our time. The critical reflection on contemporary topics will allow students to better understand the buildings and cities where we live.
