Course Content (Syllabus)
In the context of the course is discussed the role of Ηuman Sciences in the establishment of the field of theory of architecture and in the formation of architectural thought and practice. Also is clarified the research process as a means of implementation of human sciences in the compositional process by the use of the appropriate tools and techniques. Moreover is examined the relationship among man and built environment through perceptual processes and are presented in detail the concepts that nurture the architectural design in the varying levels of its conception and organisation. Reference is made to their diachronic presence in the field of architecture with insights into focal points of their semantic displacements. Also are examined issues of space-society relations, namely the remodeling of spaces and uses in the context of modern social phenomena, such as migration and mobility, exclusions, the homeless, multiculturalism, contemporary educational and environmental condition. The examination of these issues is taking place both at a theoretical level and through the analysis of examples, while reference is made to findings of field research surveys of teachers and others. In this context and for more effective uptaking and understanding of the content of the course we make extensive use of electronic audiovisual material, images (photographs, drawings and sketches), tables, charts and videos.
