A46 ARCH 527NDesign at an Impasse: The Experience of Lina Bo Bardi3.0 Units
Description:This seminar will address timely conceptual and practical issues about architecture by studying the design and theoretical works of Italian-born Brazilian architect, Lina Bo Bardi (1914-1992). As one of the very few prominent women architects in the twentieth-century, she articulated many important questions that remain open in contemporary architecture. Her work ranged from editorial to curatorial projects, from furniture to urban design, and from new buildings to restoration and adaptive reuse projects. The title of this course refers to a posthumous book she organized in the later years of her life, in which she addressed the dilemmas of designing in a world in which basic human needs and shared social values are often at odds with the pervasiveness of individualism, images and commodities in a globalized Western culture. The seminar will be divided in three modes: lectures, individual research, and an exhibition project. Lectures will focus on a comprehensive approach to her life, work, and ideas. Individual research will focus on analyzing specific works organized by categories with access to both secondary and primary sources. The results of the research will be incorporated into a curatorial project for a pilot exhibition investigating the significance of her legacy to contemporary architects and designers. Fulfills History/Theory elective requirement.

A course may be either a “Home” course or an “Ident” course.

A “Home” course is a course that is created, maintained and “owned” by one academic department (aka the “Home” department). The “Home” department is primarily responsible for the decision making and logistical support for the course and instructor.

An “Ident” course is the exact same course as the “Home” (i.e. same instructor, same class time, etc), but is simply being offered to students through another department for purposes of registering under a different department and course number.

Students should, whenever possible, register for their courses under the department number toward which they intend to count the course. For example, an AFAS major should register for the course "Africa: Peoples and Cultures" under its Ident number, L90 306B, whereas an Anthropology major should register for the same course under its Home number, L48 306B.
