The main objective of the course Contemporary Architecture is to give an insight about fundamental and critical relationships between architectural concepts and modern society development, as well as the relationships between specific architectural theories (about form, functions and constructions) and general socio – political and ideological conditions during the XIX and XX century. The second objective is to enable students to theoretically articulate issues of contemporary architecture and urban planning through critical analysis of the main architectural-urban topics, concepts, utopia, project and plans of the second half of the XX century. The programme deals with the issues of contemporary architecture which are observed through cultural-historical perspective and in philosophical, socio-economic and political context.
Students are able to use the literature in the field of history and theory of contemporary architectural, to systematize basic knowledge of history and theory of contemporary architecture and to independently perform critical analysis of specific examples in the field o contemporary architecture and urban planning. The outcome of the educational process is to enable students to critically view their author and academic positions in relation to the broader context of theory and practice of contemporary architecture and urban planning.
The programme focuses on the specific and important phases in the modern and contemporary architecture genesis: architecture of the Age of Reason (Enlightenment), XVIII century; utopia, architecture and urban planning of the XIX century; and architecture and urban planning at the turn of the XIX and XX century. The programme is further dealing with the city as a context, issues and substance of architecture as a primary place of modernity, through elaboration of topics from the history and theory of contemporary architecture and urban planning, as follows: the heroic period of contemporary architecture; Modern architecture in XX century, the modern city (CIAM, functional city); criticism and revision of modernism in the period after 1945. (Team 10, new brutalism, High-Tech), a radical critique of the city 1960-1970; conditions of postmodernism; postmodernism; contemporary conditions of urbanity.
