The Eastern Precinct (building 138)
(between Doug McDonell building and Eastern Resource Centre)
This subject aims to bring together students who have an interest in the concept of “tradition” and is designed to give participants a detailed overview regarding the discussion of tradition and its particular relation and intersection with the built environment. More specifically, the seminar uses the discourses generated over the past twenty years in the various forums of the International Association for the Study of Traditional Environments (IASTE) as a platform to further the theoretical debates surrounding the concept of tradition in the built environment. Starting with more conservative approaches regarding the concept of traditional environments, variously framed as vernacular, indigenous or organic, this course will move into more critical investigations of the use of tradition in architecture and urbanism. The built environment will be the primary lens through which we will explore traditions and its manifestations in space.
On completion of the subject students should be able to:
