Architecture 100 - Survey Of Contemporary Architecture-Csm Department Of Architecture Welcome to Architecture 100. This is an introductory architecture course intended for students of any major with an interest in the nature of architecture, design or the built environment through the 20th century. The history of humanity is chronicled through its architecture and making of places. Cultures of all types across the world leave their imprint on the earth in the form of their built environments. These environments embody the hopes, beliefs, values, creativity, technology, sense of community and the nature of beauty aspired to by their creators. This course is intended to encourage an awareness and understanding of the design concepts and intentions that shape the architecture and built environment around us today and in the future by better understanding the nature of our most recent architectural past. Through lectures, slide and film presentations and class discussions, the course will trace the development of Contemporary Architecture in the 20th Century and early 21st Century by exploring the significant design work, theories, principles and visions of influential architects and individuals from the end of the 19th century to the transition into the 21st century. Architecture 100 is not intended to be an architectural history course. Rather, class presentations will stress essential values and principles of architecture and environmental design, such as the critical relationships between environmental design and architecture with human experience, the individual and societal needs, the sense of community and place, and the developments of building technique, craft and technology. The course will explore the nature and experience of architecture as a creative unity or synthesis of art and science, of form and function and of subjective and objective sensibilities. The subject matter of the course is organized into three developmental periods: 1. “Confronting the 20th Century & Defining a Contemporary Architecture 1890’s-1930’s”, 2. “Mid-Century Contemporary: Modern into the Mainstream 1940’s-1970’s” 3. “Late 20th C & Early 21st C Architecture & Pluralism: Embracing complexity, emergent technologies and a generative & sustainable future: Each developmental period will also include presentations touching on Urban Planning concepts and S.F. Bay Area Regionalism of the era to emphasize the relationship between architecture, place and community. Through an enlightened and knowledgeable awareness of the significant developments, accomplishments and lessons of 20th & early 21st century architecture and planning, we might all be encouraged to become more positive participants in the creation of our own places and communities.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
