This subject explores how significant political changes over three centuries – the 19th, 20th and 21st, have impacted the built environments of non-Western countries and former colonies, asking how these transformations may be read through the disciplines of architecture and urbanism. Topics are periodized according to pre-colonial and colonial periods; nationalism and the cold war; and late capitalist and neo-liberal globalization; shifting the emphasis from race to politics and to economic change. The objective of this subject is to gain a comprehensive view of history through the lens of the non-Western built environment and its critiques as it developed against or in parallel with Euro-American Modernism.
Students will be asked to present on their essay topics in week 12.
