ARTH 257 Architecture of the Asia/Pacific

This course will interrogate 20th and 21st century architecture of the Asia Pacific. By concentrating on specific episodes of architectural production and urban development in the region, this course seeks to examine varying notions of the modern as it shifts across space and time. Considering theoretical and concrete modes by which modern societies and built environments have operated in tandem to create aesthetic, socio-political, economic, and technological networks will serve to frame the ways by which the Asia Pacific has come to be regarded as the crossroads for dynamic and experimental approaches to contemporary architecture.
