Art History 567, Proseminar in Architectural History: Utopian Buildings and Landscapes, Wednesdays from 4:30 – 6:30
Prof. Anna Andrzejewski
This exploratory seminar focuses on buildings and cultural landscapes one could call “utopian” in their aspiration to represent an ideal. Through a series of case studies, we will examine how design has worked across space and time to fulfill utopian aims as well as how that worked in practice. Topics may include religious spaces; educational spaces; domestic spaces; and work spaces (and combinations of all of these). We will also read about theories of utopia to frame our understanding of these buildings and landscapes.
