Moderne architectuur

In this modern architecture online course, you will get a clear overview of architecture from the early 20th century to our time in six lessons. From the late 19th century, innovations in the visual arts followed in quick succession. Nevertheless, the real modernisation of architecture did not take place until later. It took a long time before the neo-styles were abandoned, but when that happened, architecture became abruptly contemporary and mainly functionalist. Architecture historian Yvonne Hilgenkamp discusses modern architecture of the 20th century. You will learn to better understand, recognise and place this architecture.


By the end of the course, you will know the main styles and -isms such as functionalism, structuralism, brutalism, postmodernism, deconstructivism and high-tech architecture. The most iconic structures will pass by. From legends of modernism/functionalism such as Frank Lloyd Wright, Le Corbusier and Mies van der Rohe to those of contemporary starchitects such as Rem Koolhaas, Tadao Ando, Zaha Hadid, Santiago Calatrava, Bjarke Ingles, Norman Foster and Carlo Scarpa.

Reviews of this course

I really loved Yvonne's course. It remains amazing the way she can convey everything with enthusiasm. She even got me excited about modern architecture which I thought was not my preference. And it's especially nice that I can take the course just from home. I will definitely take more courses from Yvonne.
