ARH 272 - Contemporary Architectures

4 credits (Fall or Spring)
This course centers contemporary architectures within the context of social justice, providing a broad overview of architecture from the 1960s onwards. In this class we consider the economic, aesthetic, socio-political and semiotic functions of architecture, landscape design, interior design, and urban planning. We ask: How do architecture and design impact our everyday lives? In an ever-complex world, how does the built environment and infrastructure contribute to our understanding of place, power, and agency? 

Prerequisite: ARH 103 .
Note: Plus-2 option available.
