ARQU-2201 Archetypes in Architecture

Architecture is a practice whose purpose is to make the earth inhabitable, by constructing useful, beautiful and comfortable spaces. This course attempts to inquire about the foundation of the practice of architecture. Asking about the foundation leads to the question of origin, and that is the framework where the course of archetypes in architecture is located. This reflection is carried out based on the responses that, at different moments in history, man has given to the questions about the origin of architecture and city. The fundamental objective of this course is to understand how our practices are determined by the cultural beliefs decanted over time, and at the same time, it is a mental exercise that proposes critical approaches to said images of the world.
