During the first part of the 20th Century the city became the favored environment for Modern Architecture. The advancement of technology and the introduction of new materials that brought about a new form of expression were not the only triggers for transformation. Concerns of wellbeing such as hygiene, education, health and the right to work and recreation were also fundamental in shaping the new architectural design. As a response to these novel conditions, new architectural genres emerged within the framework of a diverse urban structure. The analysis of the elements that transformed the city and its architecture, evolve from this starting point, and the proposed program will include several sessions:

1. Modern Living
2. Civic and Social Infrastructure

3. The Modern City

4. Technology for a Modern Habitat

5. The University City
