COLL-E 103 11576 Architecture & Modern Culture (Hertz D) (A & H) (3 cr.)
11:15AM - 12:30PM TR
An exploration of the role architecture has had in the shaping of
modern life, beginning in the late nineteenth century, evolving
through art nouveau, and the earlier years of modernism. Attention to
the work of Frank Furness, Louis Sullivan, Horta, Gaudi, Frank Lloyd
Wright, Le Corbusier, Mies van der Rohe and other major modernist
figures. The course will conclude with a survey of recent works by
Gehry, Eisenman, and Liebeskind. Comparisons will be drawn with the
other arts as they evolved as well. This will enable a cultural
contextualization of developing trends in architectural expression.
The course will include readings from related literary texts,
modernist poems, and a study of selected works of art and music.
Visits to the outstanding I.U. Art Museum and attending a concert at
the internationally renowned School of Music will be required.
