The lecture will focus on a chronological examination of significant architecture. I will expose architectural themes and problems from 1950 to 1980 and their associated forms and meanings. Much like the history of art, architecture encompasses numerous styles, movements and international political and social developments that have informed or challenged its evolution and Construction materials and methods such as fiberglass, rubber gaskets and aluminum innovations.
