Theory of Hrchitecture History.

It is a history of architecture class. But the paper is a research paper that should be focusing more on architectural theory and philosophy themes and then relate the themes to an existing historical buildings by famous architects such as Louis Kahn, le corbusier, Frank Lloyd Writte, Frank Ghehry, Zaha Hadid, Siguared Lowerentz and other Philosophical architects. There are many reading that we were assigned to read during the course that are really helpful to get the idea of the class and what the Professor is asking for. I will also attach the course theoretical and philosophical themes so that you can read them and choose from what we covered in class and address it in the paper.

Course Theme:

Philosophy of Architecture

Inspired by Louis I. Kahn’s seminal lecture “On Philosophical Horizons” this course will try to extract the philosophical content from architecture. Acknowledging our locus of enunciation (our discursive place: an architecture school) the course will explore taken-for-granted notions of our discipline inquiring into their complex and often contradictory meanings. The course will follow a topical schedule beginning with a critical discussion of the term architecture itself and the contemporary debates surrounding it, to later engage familiar notions such as Space, Function, Use, Plan, Section, Façade, etc. It will gradually arrive at more complex notions such as Horizon, World, and to the interrelated notions of the Human Body and its situational character, admittedly what drives much of the pedagogy of this school. Each topic will be covered on a weekly basis, with selected readings from modern and contemporary authors.

Guidelines for the paper:

In choosing the topic make sure that it is related to the course. As the course has been dedicated to

concepts, words, notions or elements, that pertain to the discipline of architecture, make

sure to either elaborate on one of the topics explored in class or choose a different one

but always related to architecture. Don’t try to make a “history” of a given notion, concept

or element, since that will probably require a longer paper or even book. Instead you

should focus on the theoretical and philosophical questions at issue, yet always trying to

relate the chosen topic to some specific architectural example, whether built or unbuilt.

It is a research paper. It should be at least 12 pages. It should be in Chicago Style.

I want to start our follow up post by expressing how impressed I am with your responses to this week’s discussion questions. Understanding surplus value is a difficult task. I’m sure many of you consulted web sources and reread the Harvey section on this many times. By and large, almost all of you get the main outlines of how profit is acquired by those who are able to extract surplus value from workers (if you have a job where you’re not the owner of the company then surplus is being extracted from your labor!) and reinvest it to create profit. This cycle, according to most readings of capitalism, is what the economic system needs to survive. It is also what maintains a system of exploitation and increasing concentration of wealth in a few hands. And that, Harvey believes, will eventually be its downfall.

Why do we explore surplus value in this class? What do the motivations by those who profit from continuously expanding markets have to do with urbanization?  As Harvey says, cities are the main locations where surplus value is reinvested so that profits can be made. These can be large building projects subsidized by the government, or debt-financed mortgages in urban sprawl, or the gentrification of communities through “revitalization” projects. Over the next 5 weeks, we read about the way this “profit motive” impacts urban issues, from gentrification, to environmental degradation, to establishing borders and separations between groups of people. Much of this has to do, we’ll find, with expanding markets, valuing consumption over civic engagement, and encouraging citizens to think of themselves as individuals unconnected from a larger collective society.

For your follow up question, I’d like to see what you think of the following:

1. Pacification by Cappuccino is a phrase Sharon Zukin uses to describe how we are encouraged to think of ourselves less as citizens who might participate in a cooperative democracy and more as consumers. Through buying things, particularly luxury goods, we feel a sense of contentment and are distracted from economic and political activity that may not benefit the majority of people. We also take our wages and give them right back to those who profit from our consumption as opposed to saving it for ourselves. If we are weighed down by a heavy mortgage, we are more inclined to think individualistically, to protect our property, than to engage in cooperative political action. Yet as Harvey points out, protests are happening all the time, all around the world, by millions of people who are upset about their lack of right to the city.

What does Harvey think will need to happen for there to be significant change in these rights–for us to have a sociopolitical and economic system that enables us to realize our individuality through a collective right to the city? Hint: this is part of his final statements in the last page of the essay. What is your opinion about his views on this?

I look forward to reading your presentations–they will build on this follow up question!

Compare/Contrast Essay

Compare/Contrast Essay

 In order to learn some of the basic skills necessary to research and develop a formal analysis of a work of art, you will write 2 Compare/Contrast essays> Each essay will compare two works of art found in the textbook. The selection of artworks for each paper is up to the student, but must be selected only from chapters covered in our course (and it is recommended that you choose works that we have covered in our reading previous to the due date of the assignment). You may not write about any work of art that you have already written about in your weekly Discussion Boards. Please read all 4 pages of this assignment sheet before beginning your work.

Your formal analysis must be:

           – minimum two FULL pages (maximum 2.5 pages)

           – double-spaced in a 12-point legible font

           – MLA format with a Works Cited page. (See the MLA Style Guide found under Course    


           – The title of paintings, sculptures, photographs, printmaking works of art should ALWAYS be in


           – Be certain of what medium of art you are referring to. Not all works of art are “pictures”; do a

                little research and refer to it as a painting, sculpture, work of architecture, photograph, etc.

           -Wikipedia is not an acceptable source. This is a user generated with little to no fact checking

                so the information cannot be considered reliable.

The first stage of your analysis is to find information about the works and their respective artists, and to document that information. Use the sheet provided to help you gather important information. Be sure to include information about the possible artist influences and reference any special subject matter depicted in the works. After you have had a chance to research the basic information about your particular works of art, try to describe it using the elements of art that we have discussed in class.

The second stage of the assignment will include taking the information you have about the works (including your analysis of the elements of art, subject matter and artistic media), and presenting it in essay form.

The third and last stage of your analysis will be to refine your writing and to make any changes necessary before the next class. THIS FINAL DRAFT IS DUE, ATTACHED TO THE SUBMISSION POINT, BY SUNDAY AT 11:59 P.M. OF THE SESSION IN WHICH IT IS DUE. SEE COURSE CALENDAR AND SESSION FOLDERS FOR DUE DATES.


• All sources should be cited and included in the Works Cited page. Citations should be in MLA format. Plagiarism will result in a zero (0) for the assignment and the responsibility for proof regarding the originality of a paper rests with you, not the instructor.

• If you are absent on the due date it is your responsibility to make sure the paper or project is still turned in on time.

• Late papers and projects may be accepted with the following late penalties:

o If it is turned in within 24 hours of the due date there will be a 10% reduction.

o After 24 hours and up to 2 DAYS there will be a 50% reduction.

o After 2 DAYS the paper or project will no longer be accepted for credit.

The Formal Analysis

Your analysis will consist of two typewritten pages about the works that you have chosen. This analysis will be in paragraph form, with an introductory paragraph, a conclusion paragraph, and at least three body paragraphs. Your formal analysis must be two full pages, double-spaced in a 12-point legible font (Times New Roman preferred), and in MLA format with a Works Cited page. Each paragraph should be composed of at least three sentences, with no sentence more than three lines long.

Some of the things that you may want consider in your analysis are:

Subject matter – What is depicted in these works? Does the subject matter include any images from ancient mythology or Biblical stories? Is the subject matter a reflection of the time and place in which the artists lived? Were these works done for a famous patron? Include the name of the donor(s) sponsoring the work, if these people are known.

Artistic media – How were these works made, and what are they made from? Are these artists known for any special techniques in their work? How do these works compare with other works from this artist or other artists from the same era?

Elements of Art – Describe each one for your works; also consider the Principles of Design in your analysis.

Be sure to provide smooth transitions between all of your paragraphs. Examples: “Another way that the artist has shown the relationship between colors in the work is…. The quick, broken use of line is mirrored in the texture through…. As we move along the face, we also see….”

Spelling and grammar are as important to your piece as any other aspect of the work, if not more so. If your work has spelling or grammatical errors, then it is clear that you have not put much effort into the piece and your grade will be affected.
