Combination of illustration and Caption to produce an argument
We are supposed to find three images (I chose them and I`ll attach them as well) and then choose a caption for each image.Then make an argument about these illustrations through these five subjects: 1. avant-gardism and politics, 2. Making of tradition of modernism, 3. CIAM, 4. Centre/Periphery, 5. North African housing and the colonial subject. This is what my professor asked us to do: (In this assignment we are looking for concepts that support arguments that work toward a larger thesis about architecture. We are expecting that each caption will be argued with precision, that is, with a view to framing an argument. We expect the combination of illustration + caption will produce a correspondence between word and image, mediating between content and thesis. The image and text will be mutually informing.

I will attach three citation in this category to show you how to make an argument about these images in a precise concept about history of architecture. Thanks a lot

Politics and Architecture normally do not seem to mix, but this caption captures the opposite: politics of balancing between opposites.The potential negative consequences of technology and politics` inability to solve social problems are the core concerns of self-aware architects, due to the fast...
