授業の概要・目的 Le Corbusier said, in Vers une architecture [Towards an Architecture] (1923)

“You employ stone, wood and concrete, and with these materials you build houses and palaces. That is construction. Ingenuity is at work. But suddenly you touch my heart, you do me good, I am happy and I say: ‘This is beautiful. That is Architecture. Art enters in.’”

Mies van der Rohe said, “God is in the details.“, ”Less is more.“, ”Architecture starts when you carefully put two bricks together. There it begins.“ Mies van der Rohe was originally from Germany and had moved to America. Corbusier was originally from Switzerland and had moved to France. Architecture has local concerns, and yet its influence is global, and sometimes timeless.

Although English does not have the largest number of native speakers in the world, it is the global working language of arts and science, as well as in international project collaborations. In this class we will explore architectural issues with the use of English.
