|063-0313-22L||History of Art and Architecture V: Caractère (Character)||W||1 KP||1V||M. Delbeke, S. de Jong, N. Magouliotis|
|Kurzbeschreibung||This course is a reading class in which the architectural category of 'caractère' or character - a key concept in the 18th century but of great relevance until today - will be examined by a close reading of several key texts, from the late 1700s up until today. Independent reading and vivid discussion in class make up this course’s character.|
|Lernziel||Deepen basic knowledge, improve ability to critically read and analyze texts of architectural theory, and understand shifts in architectural thinking.|
|Inhalt||'Caractère' or character is not only a quality applied to human beings. It is also a category of architectural discourse, developed in the 18th century when architects and theorists were seeking new ways to talk about and judge buildings, pushing architectural discourse beyond Vitruvian categories to which it had been tied for centuries before.|
This reading class will closely examine key texts that discuss the phenomenon of a building's 'character' from the 1700s up until today. The weekly assigned texts (in the original French, English or German) will be read at home and then discussed in class. Independent reading and vivid participation in class are a fundamental prerequisite. In addition, there will be weekly written assignments, which will all be graded. A final written assignment at the end of the semester will be graded as well. To pass the course, students will have to read each assigned text, and hand in all written assignments on time.

|Kurzbeschreibung||Imagining History and Inventing Architecture|
This class studies Antiquity and the Middle Ages through their reception since the Renaissance. We will investigate the role of history for architects then and now by analyzing how architecture has been defined in relationship to the past. The course includes short critical reading and writing assignments (in coordination with studio deadlines).
|Lernziel||Deepen basic knowledge, improve ability to critically analyze architectural history texts, develop humanities-based reasoning and argument skills, especially persuasive writing|
|Inhalt||Antiquity and Medieval: Imagining History and Inventing Architecture|
In the Renaissance, the practice of architecture fundamentally transformed into the design-based discipline it is now largely assumed to be. Both then and especially in nineteenth- and twentieth-century architectural history, this change was understood in opposition to “good” ancient and “bad” medieval models. This course investigates Antiquity and the Middle Ages as variously fashioned in the mind of the architect and the architectural historian. How does our understanding of these periods inform our thinking about the use of history for the contemporary architect?
This course is a combination lecture, writing, and discussion class: one brief text per week will be read at home and discussed in the course meeting. Short critical writing assignments will be assigned in the first half of the semester, and the final assignment is a short paper due during the January exam period. Written assignments will be scheduled to accommodate studio deadlines, and may be completed in English, German, French, or Italian. Active in-class participation is required.

|063-0807-22L||History and Theory of Architecture IX: Coming Home - Stories in Architectural Theory||W||1 KP||1V||M. Gnehm|
|Kurzbeschreibung||Die Vorlesung diskutiert Architektur und Literatur in ihren vielfältigen Beziehungen: Geschichten als Momente, wo Architektur lebendig wird, das Schreiben von Geschichte und Theorie der Architektur und von Literatur. Der Fokus liegt auf Spanungsfeldern dessen, was Zuhauses heisst.|
|Lernziel||Ziel der Vorlesung ist die Kenntnis literarischer Aspekte im Rahmen einer Entwurfspraxis, die dem Schaffen lebenswerter Wohnräume verpflichtet ist.|
|Inhalt||Nachhausekommen hat in Kriegszeiten zweifelhafte Bedeutungen. Rilkes Poetisierung der Wohnspuren, die wegen der fehlenden Fassade eines Abrisshauses sichtbar werden, wirkt anders, wenn mit zerschossenen Gebäuden in Verbindung gebracht. Vielleicht ist das Zuhause ein Ort, wo Geschichten auf eine Art ineinanderfliessen, die die eigene Identitätssuche auf kernartige und explosive Weise begleitet. Was ist das architektonische Zuhause? Was ist das Zuhause in Geschichte und Theorie der Architektur? Ist öffentlicher Raum das Gegenteil privater Wohnungen? Kosmopolitismus das Gegenteil von Regionalismus? Erzählungen überschneiden diese Pole. Sie sind die immaterielle und doch reale Seite der Architektur. Die Vorlesung diskutiert solche Themen über Einblicke in Texte geborener Schriftsteller:innen wie Kafka, Joyce, Munro, Didion oder Danielewski, von Ingenieuren wie Musil, von Musikern wie Cage, von Architekten wie Frisch und Burger. Tschumis Detektivgeschichten treffen auf Koolhaas’ Zitierfreudigkeit im Zuge poststrukturalistischer oder dekonstruktivistischer Rückgriffe auf das Freudsche Unheimliche.|

|063-0805-22L||History and Theory in Architecture IX||W||1 KP||1V||T. Avermaete, H. Teerds|
|Kurzbeschreibung||This course offers a brief introduction to contemporary urban problems and challenges. Based on a thematic approach, the course explores how these issues pose a challenge to the fields of architecture, urban design and planning.|
|Lernziel||This course aims to offer a survey of the history and current state of urban theory for students of urban design and architecture.|
|Inhalt||It is a somewhat commonplace to say thatwe live in an 'urban age': cities are the most common habitat for the inhabitants of the world, today. Moreover, while more than half the global population lives in cities according to the reports of the UN, it is expected that within the next few decades this amount will increase to two-thirds. This 'urban' condition, however, cannot be generalized. Within the term 'city' a broad range of different urban conditions are taken together: from metropolises to suburban neighborhoods, and from shrinking (old industrial) cities to the new cities that prosper under the conditions of globalization. It also generalizes too much with regard to the urban condition within cities in the so-called Global North as compared to the Global South. In other words: the urban condition is as diverse as there are cities. However, it is also true that it is precisely in the cities that the challenges of our time are most apparent: globalization, gentrification, poverty, climate change. These topics call for a response.|
The development of cities forms the topic of discussion, not only within the fields of architecture, urban design, spatial planning, but also among politicians, economists, anthropologists, philosophers, citizens and activists. The urban realm and reality has provoked them to think and write about its form and functioning, appearance and structure, to protest against particular issues, and to take initiatives to direct the development in a different direction. Designers and planners reflect on the urban developments as well, sometimes in participating in the development themselves, sometimes from the sideline.
This is obviously not new, nor limited to the current urban condition. The discourse regarding the size and growth of cities, its functioning and politics, has a long pedigree in history, going back to the establishment of Greek and Roman city-states. This survey course aims to offer an introduction to issues at stake in cities, tailored to students of architecture and urban design. It will explore the past and current discourses, and will access a broad range of perspectives. It also does an effort to expand the scope beyond regular Western-European and North-American perspectives from Western world. The course will specifically address how architecture (positively or negatively) is involved in these issues.
The aim of the course is to challenge the question how architects and urban designers can have an influence on urban developments and issues that we often regard as beyond the scope of architecture. With this challenge, also students are urged to reflect upon their own position regarding architectural interventions in the urban fabric, facing the current condition of the urban environment (in all its diversity).
This course consists of weekly, one-hour lectures that address one particular topic at a time. In each lecture, this theme is investigated through different texts and case-studies that highlight crucial moments in the history and developments of cities. At the same time, the case studies will be structured so as to bridge between urban theories and concrete urban situations, design reflections and political ambitions. This will help convey to students the historical pedigree of current discourses on cities, whether simultaneously gain insight the role of designers in respect to the chosen topic. Students will prepare the meetings by reading fragments from core texts on the forehand.
The course is finalized through the writing of an essay, wherein the student is challenged to question how architectural agency can address (a) contemporary urban issue(s).

|Kurzbeschreibung||The Swiss Pavilion with the title “Neighborhood” for the 2023 Architecture Biennale is curated by Karin Sander and Philip Ursprung. The Swiss Pavilion shares a wall with the neighboring pavilion of Venezuela. The lecture deals with the process of conception and realization of the exhibition.|
|Lernziel||Knowledge of contemporary discourse on architecture exhibitions.|
|Inhalt||The Swiss Pavilion with the title “Neighborhood” for the 2023 Architecture Biennale is curated by Karin Sander and Philip Ursprung. The topic originates in the fact that the Swiss Pavilion, by Bruno Giacometti is sharing a wall with the neighboring pavilion of Venezuela by Carlo Scarpa. The spatial proximity of the two buildings from the 1950s raises questions about the meaning of neighborhood. The lecture deals with the process of conception and realization of the exhibition and reflects on the conditions and possibilities of architectural exhibits in general.|
