This seminar argues that although theories of architecture address how to design and build as well as govern a city, all theories of architecture can be considered political theories, since their precepts address the way space is materially organised and constructed. Treatises and texts on architecture from Vitruvius to Alberti, Vignola to Perrault, and Durand to Venturi will be introduced throughout the course. The seminar aims to investigate how the considered texts can be used as projects for the city.

The following texts will be discussed:

Part 1:

  • Vitruvius’s On Architecture

Part 2:

  • Leon Battista Alberti’s De re aedificatoria

Part 3:

  • Sebastiano Serlio’s Seven books on Architecture
  • Jacopo Vignola’s Canon of the Five Orders of Architecture
  • Andrea Palladio’s Four books on Architecture

Part 4:

  • Claude Perrault’s Ordinance for the Five Kinds of Columns after the Method of the Ancients
  • Jean-Nicolas-Louis Durand’s Précis of the Lectures on Architecture

Part 5:

  • Le Corbusier’s Towards an Architecture
  • Ludwig Hilberseimer’s Metropolis Architecture

Part 6:

  • Robert Venturi’s Complexity and Contradiction in Architecture
  • Aldo Rossi’s Architecture of the City
