HAA 270G - Transnational Exchange in Architecture; Australia and the Americas, 1939 to 2019





Philip Goad

Tuesday, 3:00pm - 5:45pm

This course, designed as a graduate level seminar, has as its focus the question of transnational exchanges in architecture and urbanism.  Themes of reception, transaction, technology transfer, the flows of capital and resources, professional networks and expertise are intrinsic to the seminar.  Australian architecture is seen as a complex amalgam of traditions, that, like the United States, does not carry the weight of British and European traditions, but instead, as a welcome receptor, become a fluid setting for dynamic change in aesthetic thought, construction technologies and urban form.
