The course explores significant changes in theory and practice across the design disciplines and professions (with particular emphasis on architecture), and considers how they are intertwined with larger social and historical forces.

The course provides an introduction to the ideas that have informed design thinking from the 19th century to the present, with an emphasis on the debates of the last four decades.
The course covers specific aspects of teaching with an emphasis on modes of teaching within the discipline of architecture.
