Course Content

The course intends to improve students` skills in the practice of thinking in terms of reading and writing by emphasizing the significance of this practice in the process of architectural production. In a movement from simpler to complex reading and writing, it aims to acquaint students with basic and advanced strategies in the analysis, synthesis and critique of architectural texts (texts, acting as the medium through which these strategies are developed, are selected to overlap within a contextual framework and renewed each year). In this sense, the course attempts to play a preparatory role for advanced courses on history, theory and criticism that demand these strategies intensively in the practice of thinking on architecture.
