Right now in school I have a class called Theories of Architecture (Or Theories in Architecture, forgot which)... We have to read a lot and provide notes for the reading (Typically one sentence per paragraph).
However, I'm having trouble reading these things. Not only am I not motivated much to read them, but also, I have just general trouble being able to read and understand more philosophical readings... I've asked what I should do, and the only answer I get is to read it again... Yet I still don't understand them...
What should I do?
Just as a note, here are some of our readings i've had trouble with:
Hancock & Widdowson, Colloquium, University of Cincinnati 1992
Bernard Leupen, Design and Analysis, Design and Use
Bernard Leupen, Design and Analysis, Design and Structure
Bernard Leupen, Design and Analysis, Order and Composition
Frascari, Tell the Tale Detail (from Nesbitt's Theorizing a New Agenda)
Also included in this is an exerpt from our teacher's manuscript about "theorizing" and "theorems"...
Again, what should I do? How can I better read these and understand them?
