Programma dettagliato e risultati di apprendimento attesi

The house as a coffer to protect the secrets of intimacy from the metropolitan tempest, the house as the basic commodity that builds the great factory of the modern city, the house as representation of the modernist revolution, the house as the public face of their inhabitants.

Those are some of the dimensions which architects througout more than one century of modernization were dealing with. Houses as manifests. These will be the topics examined in this course.

Our purpose is to understand the complexity of thoughts, actions, actors, and matter which is impied in the actual making of architecture as an institution adressed to modify reality.

We will dedicate each lecture to deeply examine each time two different houses by analysing the many layers that determine their existence: the clients, the ideas of their architects, the site, the processo of design and building, the materials, its role on the cultural debates of its time, the obstacles that it construction had to overcome, the unique characteristics that make the canonical masterpieces.

An introduction on the significance of the house in modernity will be presented in order to contribute to the conceptualization of the topic. Twentiy two classic examples of the tewntieth century were chosen to be examined: Möller (Adolf Loos), maison de verre (Pierre Chareau), Savoye (Le Corbusier), Tugendhat (Mies van der Rohe), Mairea (Alvar Aalto), Malaparte (Adalberto Libera), house over the brook (Amancio Williams), Alvorada Palace (Oscar Niemeyer), Barragán (Luis Barragán), Eames (Charles and Ray Eames), Robie (Frank Lloyd Wright), Fallingwater (Frank Lloyd Wright), Dymaxion (Buckminster Fuller), tropical house (Jean Prouvè), endless house (Frederik Kiesler), Schroeder (Gerrit Rietveld), Vanna Venturi  (Robert Venturi), Curutchet House (Le Corbusier), Maison en Boredaux (Rem Koolhaas).

All the students have to read the four general texts and six studies of cases.

An optional bibliography to complete the remaining cases examined in the course will be presented and discussed with the students.

Each student will be assigned one house of the program in order to study its critical reception, a work that will be presented in a seminar form. 

Visits to some of the mentioned examples will be organized according to the number of students and the available resources.

A visual memory of each lesson will be uploaded on BeEP.
