WGS 3450

Course Name: 
Gender and Architecture

As a visual art, architecture as an object projects a specific image; as a spatial art it affects individual and group interaction/engagement with the built environment. Through the lenses of gender and race we will examine human relationships to architecture - as designers, patrons, and users – in the public and the private realm and across a broad range of temporal and geographic boundaries. Approaches will include psychoanalysis, critical theory, and social, political, and architectural history.
