The history of architecture is defined by the history of technology. The so-called Modernist age of architecture and urban planning was only possible because of the advent of new technologies related to steel, glass and concrete construction. New materials and techniques made it possible to build entirely novel buildings and spaces. Since that time technology has evolved continuously, which leads us to ask what is possible with the technologies available to us today? This class brings together a group of leading structural engineers who are involved in the invention and development of new construction technologies, and uses their expertise to consider the connection between technology and the environment. Students will have the opportunity to visit laboratories and factories where they can study real projects, examine their particular backgrounds, how the technology is used, and the potential for architecture and urban design. Each student is expected choose a theme related to architectural technology and conduct research and analysis on the subject. The results of the research will then be presented at mid-term and in a final presentation.
