The subject critically examines the contemporary and historical modes in which architecture engages with media. Some forms of media tools at the architect’s disposal to be studied include: the magazine, the journal article, the exhibition, the manifesto, the website, the competition, and the employment of social media. The subject is for students interested in acquiring insight into the use of media for professional practice as well as for students who want to participate in the cultural industries and institutions related to architectural discourse. Special emphasis will be on the preparation of the MSD student journal Inflection.

Explain and value the relationship between architecture and media.
