Course Description: More buildings have been designed and built in the first quarter of the 21st century than were constructed in the previous two centuries. Through lectures and slides, this course will examine the work of the current star architects, from Rafael Aranda to Peter Zumthor. The work of many Pritzker Prize winners such as Richard Rogers, Norman Foster, and Renzo Piano will be discussed, as well as the rising stars. The course will examine how economics, climate change, new materials, and the computer have changed the way architects design buildings. We shall examine buildings in the U.S., Europe, the Middle East, South America, and Asia.
Dates/Times: Wednesdays Jan 10 to Feb 28, from 2 pm - 3:15pm.
Instructor: Robert Cassway
