Aim of course

This course explores mechanisms of power as they are inscribed in our buildings, which determine the way we behave. The goal is to realize that architecture is never really neutral but rather has a strong impact on social behavior.

Subject of course

The course will look at various anthropological, social, psychological and philosophical theories to explain how different cultures produce different social relations and architectures. Special focus is directed on issues such as privacy and publicity, identity and space.Issues discussed include Hillier#s Social Logic of Space, Lévi-Strauss concept of house -socitey, terriotality, personal space and other topics.
