Term Winter 2018
Class ARCH 506
Class Title Race, Space, & Architecture
Description This course will engage students in a cross-cultural consideration of the politics of space and the practices of placemaking in a variety of urban contexts. In readings that address architectural, urban design, and planning practice, the class will examine how the articulation of space shapes and reflects political and social subjectivities in both Western and non-Western contexts. Historical and cross-cultural examples will highlight the oft-hidden yet inherently political nature of the production of the built environment, and heighten our awareness of the normative and ethical dimensions of our work. Of particular interest will be the processes by which professionals participate in the articulation of the public sphere, and how design and structural features may reflect and influence the key parameters of race, class, and gender.
