Course Description

Currently, when considering the nature of architecture, isn’t it problematic to simply define it as an ‘artifact’ or ‘artificial environment’ that is conceived and constructed for people.

From such a limited point of view, we’ll find it impossible to resolve any of the widespread problems that face us today.

Instead, isn’t it necessary that we consider architecture from a broader perspective? Rather than limiting our understanding of architecture as an ‘environment for people,’ we need to foster a broad awareness of contemporary issues that incorporates all aspects of our surroundings.

Thinking beyond the scale and implications of the conventional artificial environments that we find in buildings, landscapes, or urban designs, we will consider an expanded notion of architecture that meets the demands of today’s society.
