The course focuses on the philosophical and architectural discourse of European Modernity, covering the period from the Renaissance of the 15th century to Contemporary Times. The aims of the course are: 1. A critical examination of basic ideas and concepts of architectural and philosophical thinking, as these are traced through selected texts written by architects, philosophers and thinkers during the above period. 2. An attempt to unveil and establish possible correlations and correspondences between architectural discourse, the world of philosophical ideas and the intellectual culture of each era, in direct connection with the ‘problem’ of space. 3. An exploration of the timeliness of these ideas and concepts for the enrichment and the meaningful conception and organization of contemporary architectural space.
