Unit SRA215 builds on skills and concepts learned in SRA143 Art and Society. Utopian ideals have in one way or another characterised our modern western world since the mid-eighteenth century, as changing views of history led to shifting theoretical and philosophical frameworks, and extraordinary technological changes spurred architects into action and reaction. European and American art and architecture are studied in the contexts of the diverse, rich, and multifaceted developments, which have informed style and content. Modern architecture and meaning are examined, and modern movement ideas evaluated via the critical reactions to modernism.
