The Tuesday Lectures – Spring 2018

Lecture series about architecture history and theory /

The Tuesday Lectures give an introduction to the history and theory of Western architecture from ancient Greece to our present time in a survey like manner.

Within the individual lectures the focus shifts between the presentation of concepts, phenomena, geographical regions, and exemplary buildings and architects. Specific emphasis is laid on the embedding of Nordic architecture history into a global context.

Each semester, the chronologically organized survey lectures are supplemented by two History/Theory in Practice (HIP/TIP) lectures, in which architects, curators, historians, theoreticians and other experts present works that exemplify the relevance of architecture history and theory for contemporary practice.

When:

  • Lectures for 1st-year students start at 14.30
  • Lectures for 2nd-year students start at 10.30

Please note the exceptions on 20 March, 10 April, 1 May and 15 May.

Duration: 60 – 90 min
First lecture: 6 February 2018
Last lecture: 15 May 2018
