Through fieldwork, and photographic and drawn analysis, students consider the relationship between the diverse practices of architecture and American modernity. They also question the relevance of theories of modernity on contemporary architectural practices. The subject develops students' ability to understand architecture as built form through experiencing key case studies from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries in North America. Themes considered may include influences from Europe; technologies influencing new design attitudes; the importance of the domestic dwelling unit and single houses in modern considerations of spatial division; the impact of print media and exhibition on architectural attitudes; and the link between architecture and contemporary art practices.
