Excursion abroad

LKA037M05
5 ECT
Mandatory

This course highlights the interaction between historical, political-ideological and spatial issues by an in-depth analysis of one particular European metropolis. Students will learn how the production and reconstruction of the built environment is couched in professional debates that relate to a myriad of often ideologically charged issues. Key projects from various periods will be visited and studied. The excursion is prepared during seminars that invite students to study a) texts, books and cartographic material in the domain of architecture and town planning, and b) consult alternative forms of representation, including fiction, documentaries and movies.
