History of modern architecture and art in the 19th and 20th centuries

The course presents the history of modern architecture and art in the 20th century. The course describes the formulation of a new language for the New Age in the works of modern architecture fathers from the late 19th century and during the first half of the 20th century, and the emphasis on means of expression and building methods in art and architecture.

Later, the course describes the developments of this modernism at its peak by analyzing the later structures of leading architects.

The end of the course describes the development of the “postmodern situation” in Western visual culture in the second half of the 20th century as an expression of political, economic and social processes and focuses on postmodernist alternatives proposed by architects to modernism.

For almost a decade, about 800 students attended this course and received tools for analyzing modern and contemporary architecture from a broad historical and cultural perspective.
