Ideal Forms of Contemporary Urbanism ⎯ CANCELED

CANCELED - Advanced seminar about an architectural approach to the problems of disurbanization. Focuses on texts and projects of a particular lineage of architects and planners, who are pursuing 'metropolitan urbanity' through a series of concrete, discrete, tangible interventions from 1944 to 1999. Studies the organization of flows and the articulation of public spaces within various projects seeking a definition of "urbanity" using analytical diagrams. Relates this architectural definition to more theoretical definitions in philosophy and anthropology.
