Argomenti trattati

 

This course uses the big city and the landscape as the natural playground were the contemporary architecture was born and developed. The students will face a History of the Contemporary City which is, at the same time, a History of the Contemporary Architecture and a History of the Contemporary Landscape.

The historical period of contemporaneity is divided in three phases related to changes of paradigm in economy and philosophy: 1882-1939 (monopolist capitalism and scientifism); 1939-1979 (welfare state and existencialism); and 1979-2007 (late capitalism and relativism). Each period gave birth to a new kind of big city: Metropolis, Megalopolis and Metapolis.

The course makes two parallel approaches to this topic. The first one is mainly theoretical, and focuses on the historical evolution of the idea of landscape and the concept of sustainability. The second one is more practical, and analyzes six cases of study corresponding to cities that were emblematic in each period: New York and Berlin in the metropolitan one, London and Los Angeles in the megalopolitan one, and Shanghai and Bogota in the metapolitan one.

Modalità di valutazione

The final grade will result of the proportional addition of three partial grades:

  • 33% corresponding to 5 short tests about the videos and the lessons content.
  • 33% corresponding to the seminars group presentations (the physical presence in the presentation is compulsory to be evaluated).
  • 33% corresponding to the participation in the seminar debates.

In order to pass the course, the three partial grades have to have been evaluated. In case anyone would have not, the student will have to submit the corresponding task at the end of the term (in the day of the exam). In case no one of them had been evaluated, he/she will have to do, at the end of the term (in the day of the exam), a written exam about the lectures of the course (this will also be the case of the non-assisting students).

If the student wishes to improve his/her final grade, he/she will have to do this same written exam at the end of the term and about the contents of the course lectures. The grade of this exam will substitute the previous one.
