Architecture and Its Effects: On the Air!

leon-ferrari-04Architecture, whether in the form of ideas, built or unbuilt work, representation, text, discourse or process,  can be considered as a stimulator of spatial, social, economic, ideological or aesthetic, etc. influences. This course aims to reconsider architecture, not as an isolated discipline, but as a praxis that dwells inside and triggers a larger dynamic, complex and contingent field of relationships. Through lectures, seminars, on-site investigations and designerly research using various modes of documentation, the semester will focus on exploring, understanding, reviewing and representing contemporary architectural production and discourse -including current examples in Istanbul- in relation to their experiential, socio-cultural, material, environmental etc. effects.
