ARCH 6309 - Elements, Principles, and Theories in Japanese Architecture


     
Spring. 3 credits. Student option grading.

Co-meets with ARCH 3309 .

L. Mirin.

Examination of Japanese architecture (buildings and gardens) and their contexts: landscapes, settlements, and cities. The course is addressed to those interested in Japanese architecture as a manifestation of Japanese culture and as a subject for analysis. Emphasis is on underlying concepts, ordering principles, formal typologies, space and its representation, perceptual phenomena, and symbolic content. Readings focus on theoretical treatments of these aspects by Japanese and western writers.
