PROGRAM (THEORIES)

 

This seminar will examine the trajectory of the notion of program as a design

question. Specifically, it will trace a series of terms mobilized in the field since

the mid-sixties to describe—in fact, to reduce—actions in space: from function

to behavior, from situation to event, from use to organization. The seminar is

structured around ten exemplary books regarding questions of program; each

session will interrogate one book, and scrutinize the arguments it articulated,

the objectives it pursued, the critiques it entailed, and the practices it implied.

Ultimately, this seminar will trace definitions and strategies formulated to

program architecture.
