Content

The unit examines critical positions developed within the history and theory of architecture. Once an understanding of these positions is gained they will be applied towards contemporary architecture examples for students to develop perspective in the profound changing conditions of society in the 20th Century. This perspective is used as a mechanism to explain how architecture participates in the contemporary world and to consider architecture in the 21st century. SRA743 Critical Futures, embedded in history and theory, is complemented by the conditions and processes of architectural and urban practices and aims to establish ‘critical tools’ for students to analysis of those practices on society.
