Course Description: This course offers a study of the urban development of the city of Berlin. The course explores the architectural history of Berlin’s capital city from its genesis to the present day. The course focuses on architectural and urban theory, Berlin’s architectural past and present, and the historical and political developments that helped shape the built fabric of Germany’s capital city. The course reviews Berlin’s changes including Berlin’s emergence in the thirteenth century, its growth during the Margraviate of Brandenburg, its role as first the Prussian and later the Imperial capital, the development of the city during the Weimar Republic and the Third Reich, and finally its destruction, division, and rebirth as the new German capital. The course discusses topics including the various architectural styles present in the city, how these styles link to historical and political developments in Germany and the world, global architectural movements, political posturing, and demographic changes. The course consists of lectures and three excursions. Students select and research the history of a building in the city in pairs and present the results in class, and take a written examination.
