Skrócony opis:

This introductory course (Part 1 and 2) addresses the problems of the place of architecture in modern systems of the fine arts. The history of modern and contemporary architecture in Europe and North America (between 1800 and the present) is seen as closely interrelated to the history of modern painting, sculpture and other media.

Pełny opis:

This introductory course assumes no background in architectural history. It provides an interpretation of the history of modern architecture and art in Europe and North America, from the end of Enlightenment to the rise of structural rationalism and first avant-garde movements (Part 1). Two concepts will be analysed in greater detail: architecture parlante and Gesamtkunstwerk, which in a very distinctive way determine the status of architecture in relation to other arts, from the end of the 18th to the beginning of the 20th century. Boullée’s celebrated cenotaph for Newton will open the discussion on the modern paradigm of architecture as monument, while Olbrich’s Secession building, which still hosts exhibitions of art, will serve as an illustration of the 19th-century quest for a total work of art. The role of exhibitions in shaping the contemporary image of the integration of architecture and the visual arts will be presented in Part 2; Mies van der Rohe’s Barcelona Pavilion, which housed no works of art, except for Kolbe’s sculpture and the Barcelona chairs, or Diller + Scofidio’s Blur Building, will serve as key examples. The main problem discussed in the second part of the course is that of architectural sculpture, a term whose definition underwent a significant change in the 1960s. Architectural sculpture comes to refer more often to the works of artists, installations, site-specific works or works/interventions in the public space.
