1. Apart from the lectures given by the lecturer, students will read a number of academic books and articles related to architectural theory
and philosophy in depth and will learn to recognize and to analyze the structure and main ideas of various academic articles and books.
2. Students will independently research two different architects’ design philosophy and tease out distinctive ideas on their design philosophy
respectively. They will analyze and present the research findings to the class and lead a critical discussion on these architects’ works at
the end of the semester.
In order to meet the training objectives of critical thinking, dialectic discourse and international cross cultural visions within the departmental curriculum, this course intends to introduce several Philosophical paradigms on architectural theory to raise questions to students and requires them to present their critical ideas on this fundamental issue within the scope of dialectic philosophies on architectural design.
