Course Type Mono-Disciplinary Course
Credits (CFU / ECTS) 4.0
Semester First Semester
Course Description The teaching has the purpose to give the student a critical and adequate consciousness on the main themes and problems that take up the present discussion, through the analysis of the remarkable moments of contemporary architecture. The current situation shows on one hand the greatest importance of architecture in our globalization societies, becoming a landmark in the contemporary aesthetics, on the other it seems to manifest the dichotomy between global and local with the consequent crisis of the city, which affirms through the almost whole of its works, the would-be critical comparison with the context. The necessary comparison in architecture among time, shape and site disappears. The re-appropriation of critical tools allows to characterize a design strategy like the link among processes, mechanisms and paradigms often present in the current model works. The course will try to explain some problems that are essential for the knowledge of the different theoretical and contemporary positions. It will be possible introducing concepts conceived like "theory grammar".
