Skrócony opis:

Lectures will focus on fundamental change in theory of architecture between 1600 and 1800 and on the novel methods of conceptualizing the built form in the wake of shifts in contemporary science and culture, as well as on diverse narratives concerning history of architecture and vernacular building.

Pełny opis:

The point of departure for the course will be an analysis of Vincenzo Scamozzi’s L’idea dell’architettura universale (1615), the critical theoretical text summing up the Vitruvian tradition and re-defining architecture as a science, rather than one of the fine arts. Subsequent lectures will focus on the most important architectural treatises, which from the early 1600s were published primarily in France, demonstrating gradual loss of artistic hegemony by Italy and the growing domination of French academic doctrines throughout Europe. The works investigated will range from those by Pierre Le Muet, through challenging books by Claude Perrault to a humble volume on residential architecture by pseudo-Opaliński aimed at landed gentry in the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth. Publications offering novel theoretical precepts underpinning contemporary design, based on developments in early modern science (such as introduction of projective geometry evident in Guarino Guarini’s celebrated projects) will be a subject of comprehensive study. New approaches to history of architecture diverging from the classical tradition (from Caramuel y Lobkowitz to John Wood) will also be subjected to an in-depth investigation. A variety of contemporary texts containing reflection on architecture, but not formulated in the form of a canonical “treatise”, will be equally closely examined. In this category are popular architectural manuals, handbooks for artisans, pattern-books, as well as newspaper articles, broadsheets, country-house guidebooks (accompanying the arrival of tourism), novels (including the famous Gothic novels) and many other texts contributing to architectural discourse in early modern Europe. All the written sources and visual material will be analyzed to demonstrate complex intermeshing between contemporary architecture and early modern culture in its diverse manifestations, revealing their ideological underpinnings (class, race, and gender discourses).
