引言:回放歷史

本課程將檢視近四十年來建築思辯的重要轉折。授課的手法將由闡明現今問題入門,進而投射至過往,以為瞭解現在而提供一個歷史性的「架構」。同時,也將由審視四至五個當今被認為是極其重要的建築議題著手,它們分別是:全球化、科技、認知科學、環境以及文化政治學。本課程亦將回顧近五十年來的歷史,以為這些當前的焦點議題建構起建築與文化上的先例。 前述的議題其實在許多的建築思潮中,所產生形式上或理論上的迴響應該都是大家所知的。諸如:六十年代的科技崇拜運動、「後現代」的符號闡釋、現象學、第三世界的「社會現代主義」、鄉土主義、後現代主義與電馴論等等。學生也將藉由研究一些五十年代以來,對現代主義的演變有所批判的建築物、寫作與思潮,進而審視現代主義如何地在它的餘波蕩漾後,於不同的時期中被批判性的解密與重生。

Introduction: Doing History Backwards

The course will look at key shifts in architectural thought and debates over the last four decades. The approach of the course will be to address current day problems, projecting back into the past in order to offer something of a historical "frame" to understand the present. The course begins by looking at four or five issues in architecture understood to be critical for present times: globalization, technology, cognitive sciences, the environment, and cultural politics. The course then reaches back over the last fifty years to establish precedents for these current-day preoccupations in architectural and critical terms. The above topics will be seen to have formal or theoretical resonances in a host of architectural movements: the technofantasist movements of the 1960s, "post-modern" semiosis, phenomenology, Third World "social modernism", vernacularism, post-modernism, cybernetics, and so on. Students will look at buildings, writing and movements as part of the evolving critiques of modernism from the 1950s onwards; in doing so, the students will come to examine the manner in which modernism was both critically unraveled and reinvented at different moments of its aftermath.
