Part I 

1. Presenting one case study from the reading and one from the lecture, reflect on how from the second half of the 19th century architecture became an interpreter of civilizations, and contributed to the Eurocentric idea of world order based on ‘racialism’ (Cheng, 134). In your response, outline what Irene Cheng means by ‘racialism’, and how, through the author’s argument, racialism is embedded in Modernism. (300-600 words)

2. In thinking about the class materials and readings, reflect on the format used by Viollet le Duc to produce his history of mankind. Why do you think the architect used a children’s book format? Base your response on factual and analytical information, rather than your opinion. (150-400 words)
