Theories of Architectural Form
Parsons School of Design: School of Constructed Env.
The physical forms of buildings and cities embody complex and multivalent forces. Rooted in the ancient Greek theoria (Θεωρία – contemplation), architectural theories draw upon ancient histories and contemporary issues and practices to determine principles for action. Through readings, lectures and site visits, this course examines architectural form as a confluence and reconciliation of environmental, socio-economic, material and historical-theoretical forces that inform placemaking and professional identity. This course will unfold in a curated series of lectures by architecture faculty, featuring how each reconciles the forces of architectural form in her/his/their own research and creative practice.
