Theory of Architecture 3:1

  • Number of credits 8 credits

About the course

The course aims at introducing methods of research and mapping in contemporary architecture and urbanism to investigate emerging spatial responses.

It focuses on complex urban systems, to observe their emergence and explore how these new systems affect established concepts of the private, the public and the common as well as to develop the concepts of formal and informal systems, through architecture, in society.

This knowledge will be produced through reflective practice, i.e. by means of reflection-on-action.
