Art and Architecture in the French Riviera

UT Informal Classes
Date:  Oct. 29-Nov. 12 2012
Day:  Monday (3 meetings)
Time:  6-8pm
Location: Thompson Conference Center (Room 2.110)

This class will explore the evolution of the dynamic relationship between art, architecture, and landscape in general; looking at the last century in the French Riviera in particular.  Whether art in the service of architecture, architecture in the service of art, or landscape in the service of either – these relationships encourage an ongoing conversation about the historic, cultural and aesthetic factors which contribute to the often symbiotic, albeit occasionally disjointed or divided, relationship between art, architecture and landscape.  In considering its more recent modernist heritage, i.e, Eileen Grey, Le Corbusier, Tadao Ando among others – we will look to the French Riviera as a case study to further understand the timeless dialogue which exists among art and architecture, and the often seminal role that landscape plays in that dynamic relationship.
