Architecture: Interpretation and Theories

Format: Campus

Program Description:

The programme takes a current perspective on issues of criticism and interpretation in architecture, and on recent architectural ideas. It has an introduction to architectural interpretation: how to read and how to write architectural texts, including contributions from journalists as well as historians: other key components are on architecture and the poetic, on representation, and on theories of recent architectural practice. The focus of the programme is on building, and developing innovative ways of writing about it. Most of its material involves studying recent books that have developed new ways of thinking about the making of architecture and of interpreting it. There is an openness and sense of inquiry about the work which its students have produced, and it values work which is the development of a personal voice.
