ARCHITECTURAL THEORY

TUESDAYS

25 AUGUST 2020 - 29 SEPTEMBER 2020

18:00 - 19:30

ABOUT THE WEBINAR

“Architectural theory has its unique distinctions. It comprises a broad body of ideas and debates, which over many centuries has not only come to form a substantial literary edifice but also one ever more complex and re-fined in its details and issues.


With the articulate engagement of one generation responding to the ideas of another, architectural theory is more often than not contentious and instructive. It is not born in isolation. It reflects the aspirations of emperors and the whims of kings, and again the insights of lay critics and the pride of competing professionals.


As an intellectual enterprise, architectural theory draws upon the larger currents of its time – political, social, scientific, philosophical, and cultural – and in this way it of-ten cannot be understood outside of these insinuating forces. As a constructional art, architecture also speaks to the physical world or more generally to human aspirations and values. The study of these ideas is, in its own way, a lucid compendium of human history.” -

RELIGION AND ARCHITECTURE

THURSDAYS

27 AUGUST 2020 - 22 OCTOBER 2020

18:00 - 19:30

ABOUT THE WEBINAR

Religion has, for 5,000 years, been an essential part of the human condition. Spiritual beliefs of all kinds have sought to shape the human psyche and leave a lasting imprint on our souls.


Religion is a complicated subject, partly because there are so many shades of religious belief and partly due to the difficulty of actually defining what religion is.


The Concise Oxford Dictionary characterizes it as “the belief in a superhuman controlling power, especially in a personal God or gods entitled to obedience and worship.”


That’s a pretty loose definition and it covers a lot of ground. Today, there are five major religious traditions: Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Buddhism, and Hinduism. There are countless smaller groups, some of which are subsections of these five and others that have no connection to them.

ABOUT THE WEBINAR

Wide interest has developed in light and lighting, not least because the growing awareness of architectural quality has given rise to an increased demand for good architectural lighting.


Standardised lighting concepts may have sufficed to light the concrete architecture of the recent past, but the varied and distinctive architecture of modern-day buildings re-quires equally differentiated and distinctive lighting.
