A series of close examinations of key buildings and writings in 20th-century architecture of Western Europe, North America, Australia and Japan. A substantial proportion of the selected buildings will be small and medium-scale projects. They will be examined in terms of key concepts and issues, including: plan libre and raumplan, designing in section, public and private, architecture and the media, architecture and the city, architecture and landscape, and cross-cultural interaction. Assignments include exercises in writing short analytical texts and in freehand drawing and typographic design.
