The city of the future: utopias and dystopias

Seminar with Daniele Porretta

Courses and workshops

This course offers a historical journey through utopic and dystopic literature and film, exploring the urban scenarios imagined between the late 19th century and the first half of the 20th. While the history of architecture clearly recognises the relation between utopia and the construction of urban space, dystopia is generally marginalised. Yet today dystopic works offer an essential tool for critique of the present and understanding of the contemporary city.
