Has architectural theory become a historical phenomenon to be anthologized and studied as another passing phase in the history of the discipline? Do the current commonplace watchwords of "practice" and "research" mark the end of theory's place in architectural discourse? This edited volume posits the contrary--that theory remains urgent and even unavoidable, so ingrained in architectural practice and pedagogy that it remains a vital if sometimes latent influence. Architectural theory is not [...]

Has architectural theory become a historical phenomenon to be anthologized and studied as another passing phase in the history of the discipline? Do the current commonplace watchwords of "practice" and "research" mark the end of theory's place in architectural discourse? This edited volume posits the contrary--that theory remains urgent and even unavoidable, so ingrained in architectural practice and pedagogy that it remains a vital if sometimes latent influence. Architectural theory is not confined to its supposed heyday in the decades leading up to the year 2000; it has persisted and expanded as the stakes of theoretical discussions have transformed. 2000+: The Urgencies of Architectural Theory collects new essays from a range of the most compelling architectural historians and theorists of the moment, including Lucia Allais, Beatriz Colomina, Mark Cousins, Arindam Dutta, John Harwood, Catherine Ingraham, Mark Jarzombek, Mari Lending, Spyros Papapetros, Felicity Scott, Pelin Tan, Bernard Tschumi, Eyal Weizman, Mark Wigley, and Mabel Wilson. Brought together for a conference marking the end of Wigley's tenure as dean of Columbia University's Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation, these thinkers chart new directions and points of critical importance for theory in architecture.

Aesthetics of Architecture, The

Roger Scruton

2013    320 Pages    (Princeton University Press)

Architecture is distinguished from other art forms by its sense of function, its localized quality, its technique, its public and nonpersonal character, and its continuity with the decorative arts. In this important book, Roger Scruton calls for a return to first principles in contemporary architectural theory, contending that the aesthetic of architecture is, in its very essence, an aesthetic of everyday life. Aesthetic understanding is inseparable from a sense of detail and style, from which [...]

Architecture is distinguished from other art forms by its sense of function, its localized quality, its technique, its public and nonpersonal character, and its continuity with the decorative arts. In this important book, Roger Scruton calls for a return to first principles in contemporary architectural theory, contending that the aesthetic of architecture is, in its very essence, an aesthetic of everyday life. Aesthetic understanding is inseparable from a sense of detail and style, from which the appropriate, the expressive, the beautiful, and the proportionate take their meaning. Scruton provides incisive critiques of the romantic, functionalist, and rationalist theories of design, and of the Freudian, Marxist, and semiological approaches to aesthetic value. In a new introduction, Scruton discusses how his ideas have developed since the book's original publication thirty years ago, and he assesses the continuing relevance of his argument for the twenty-first century.

Analogie et théorie en architecture

Jean-pierre Chupin

2010    328 Pages    (Infolio)

La matière de l'architecture n'est pas faite que de pierre, de béton ou de bois, mais également d'idées, de connaissances et d'emprunts les plus divers, de zones hétérogènes mêlant des échelles, des impératifs et des attentes parfois contradictoires. Dans ces univers hétéroclites, autant de sources de tensions du projet menaçant jusqu'à sa cohérence et son efficace, les concepteurs doivent faire montre d'une indéniable capacité de mise en relation et l'architecture, qu'elle soit [...]

La matière de l'architecture n'est pas faite que de pierre, de béton ou de bois, mais également d'idées, de connaissances et d'emprunts les plus divers, de zones hétérogènes mêlant des échelles, des impératifs et des attentes parfois contradictoires. Dans ces univers hétéroclites, autant de sources de tensions du projet menaçant jusqu'à sa cohérence et son efficace, les concepteurs doivent faire montre d'une indéniable capacité de mise en relation et l'architecture, qu'elle soit proactive dans ses pratiques ou rétroactive dans ses théories, se révèle largement redevable de cette puissante forme de pensée qu'est l'analogie; claire et naturelle, en apparence, dans les termes qu'elle entend rapprocher, mal comprise et complexe, en définitive, dans sa façon de relier des entités disjointes. Mais t'analyse ne saurait se satisfaire d'une théorie des ressemblances. Certaines analogies sont persistantes, d'autres ne résistent pas à l'exposition. Certaines accompagnent le mûrissement d'un projet, d'autres s'imposent d'elles-mêmes, après le surgissement de l'édifice, à l'encontre, parfois, des intentions premières. Il se trouve des analogies trop littérales et trop visibles, tandis que d'autres n'émergent qu'à la suite d'explications et d'analyses fouillées. Sorte de secret mal gardé, l'analogie serait de fait une des grandes matrices de l'architecture. Examinant rigoureusement ta portée pratique et théorique de cette hypothèse, les études d'histoire critique rassemblées dans ce premier ouvrage se consacrent à trois registres de la modernité qui éclairent l'architecture contemporaine: les conceptions de ta vie et de la biologie (des images du corps aux principes de ta génétique), les conceptions de la ville (en reconstituant les contours et les enjeux de ce que l'architecte Aldo Rossi appelait une ville analogue ), et les conceptions mêmes de la conception (dont les modèles a [less]

Architectural Atmospheres

Gernot Böhme (Contribution by), Olafur Eliasson (Contribution by), Juhani Pallasmaa (Contribution by), Christian Borch (Editor)

2014    112 Pages    (Walter de Gruyter GmbH)

Architecture is increasingly understood to be a sensual, spatial experience, which means that the experience of buildings and spatial constellations is also a perception of atmospheres that are rated as positive or negative. Architects, planners, investors, and politicians must produce effects such as these according to intersubjective and communicable criteria, and not intuitively or randomly. Architectural Atmospheres addresses the growing awareness of the atmospheric dimension of architecture [...]

Architecture is increasingly understood to be a sensual, spatial experience, which means that the experience of buildings and spatial constellations is also a perception of atmospheres that are rated as positive or negative. Architects, planners, investors, and politicians must produce effects such as these according to intersubjective and communicable criteria, and not intuitively or randomly. Architectural Atmospheres addresses the growing awareness of the atmospheric dimension of architecture and provides a current, programmatic discussion of this topic. What possibilities does this approach open to architecture, what value does this knowledge have? Three essays and a conversation lead a cross-discipline discussion on the impact of architecture, and contribute to the debate first initiated by Peter Zumthor. The texts are accompanied bythirty-five color images that capture architectural moods in a variety of ways. Gernot Böhme is Professor Emeritus of Philosophy at Darmstadt Technical University and Director of the Institute for Practical Philosophy, e.V., Ipph, in Darmstadt, Germany. Christian Borch is Professor of Political Sociology at the Department of Management, Politics, and Philosophy, Copenhagen Business School, Denmark. Olafur Eliasson is a Danish-Icelandic artist. Eliasson incessantly explores our modes of perceiving. His work spans photography, installation, sculpture, and film. Juhani Pallasmaa is one of Finland's most distinguished architects and architectural thinkers. [less]

Atmospheres

Peter Zumthor

2008    76 Pages    (Walter de Gruyter GmbH)

What "really constitutes an architectural atmosphere," Peter Zumthor says, is "this singular density and mood, this feeling of presence, well-being, harmony, beauty ... under whose spell I experience what I otherwise would not experience in precisely this way." Zumthor's passion is the creation of buildings that produce this kind of effect, but how can one actually set out to achieve it? In nine short, illustrated chapters framed as a process of self-observation, Peter Zumthor describes what he [...]

What "really constitutes an architectural atmosphere," Peter Zumthor says, is "this singular density and mood, this feeling of presence, well-being, harmony, beauty ... under whose spell I experience what I otherwise would not experience in precisely this way." Zumthor's passion is the creation of buildings that produce this kind of effect, but how can one actually set out to achieve it? In nine short, illustrated chapters framed as a process of self-observation, Peter Zumthor describes what he has on his mind as he sets about creating the atmosphere of his houses. Images of spaces and buildings that affect him are every bit as important as particular pieces of music or books that inspire him. From the composition and "presence" of the materials to the handling of proportions and the effect of light, this poetics of architecture enables the reader to recapitulate what really matters in the process of house design.

This is a definitive examination of how the inter-relationship between nature, architecture, and design is essential to human well-being. Sustainable design has made great strides in recent years; unfortunately, it still falls short of fully integrating nature into our built environment.

This is a definitive examination of how the inter-relationship between nature, architecture, and design is essential to human well-being. Sustainable design has made great strides in recent years; unfortunately, it still falls short of fully integrating nature into our built environment. Through a groundbreaking new paradigm of restorative environmental design, award-winning author, Stephen R. Kellert proposes a new architectural model of sustainability. In Building for Life, Kellert examines the fundamental interconnectedness of people and nature, and how the loss of this connection results in a diminished quality of life. This thoughtful new work illustrates how architects and designers can use simple methods to address our innate needs for contact with nature. [less]

English summary: Vitruvius's De architectura remained the most essential of architectural treatises from the first to the eighteenth century. This Latin edition and French translation, richly illustrated, allows readers to discover the sole surviving classical text on the subject. French description: Le Traite d'architecture de Vitruve, presente a l'empereur Auguste et donc publie dans les annees 30-20 av. J.-C., est le seul des textes grecs et romains consacres a l'art de batir, dont nous savons qu'ils furent nombreux, a avoir echappe au naufrage de la grande tradition technique de l'Antiquite classique. Considere depuis l'epoque carolingienne jusqu'au XVIIIe siecle comme une veritable bible dans sa specialite, il souffre aujourd'hui d'un relatif discredit, et rares sont les praticiens contemporains qui jugent utile de le relire, ou meme seulement de le feuilleter. Le but de la presente edition n'est pas de rehabiliter le vieux theoricien, et encore moins d'en promouvoir de nouveau l'usage a des fins theoriques ou pratiques: ce serait, a l'age de la conception assistee par ordinateur, ou l'accent est mis sur la rationalite des programmes, l'industrialisation des techniques et la purete des formes serielles, pour le moins incongru. Mais rendre plus facile l'acces a son oeuvre nous a paru neanmoins necessaire, pour tous ceux qui, en amateurs, en etudiants ou en specialistes, s'interessent a l'architecture, a l'evolution des formes, des structures et des techniques, et plus generalement a l'histoire de l'art europeen. Pour cela, nous avons evidemment conserve l'integralite du texte original et de sa traduction, mais singulierement reduit les commentaires qui dans la grande edition des Belles Lettres en accompagnaient presque chaque mot, ou du moins chaque notion, et supprime ce qu'on appelle l'apparat critique, c'est-a-dire la liste des variantes reperees dans les manuscrits medievaux du De architectura. Sous une forme maniable, et sans rien perdre d'essentiel, cette nouvelle version, qui integre les decouvertes archeologiques les plus recentes, autorise la consultation continue ou anthologique d'un ouvrage qui demeure, en l'etat de notre documentation, unique en son genre, et qui, paradoxalement, a encore beaucoup a nous apprendre, et pas seulement dans le domaine de la construction. L'illustration qui l'accompagne, enrichie d'un cahier en couleurs, est de nature a en fournir une transposition concrete et suggestive. En annexe, differents index facilitent la navigation interne du lecteur curieux ou presse, et une bibliographie, reduite a l'essentiel et centree sur les etudes en langue francaise, incite a l'approfondissement de la reflexion. En cette annee de la celebration du bimillenaire de la mort d'Auguste, il ne nous a pas paru inopportun de reactualiser l'un des ouvrages qui ont sur le long terme le plus durablement contribue a definir la culture specifique des premieres decennies de l'Empire romain. Rappelons les noms des editeurs des dix livres de ce Traite. Il est clair que le present volume leur doit tout, et d'abord sa substance meme, c'est-a-dire le corps de son texte, qu'ils ont etabli, traduit et explique: Livre I, Philippe Fleury, 1990; Livre II, Louis Callebat, Pierre Gros, Catherine Jacquemard, 1999; Livre III, Pierre Gros, 1990; Livre IV, Pierre Gros, 1992; Livre V, Catherine Saliou, 2009; Livre VI, Louis Callebat, 2004; Livre VII, Bernard Liou, Marie-Therese Cam, Michel Zuinghedau, 1885; Livre VIII, Louis Callebat, 1973; Livre IX, Jean Soubiran, 1969; Livre X, Louis Callebat, Philippe Fleury, 1986.

What is the role of design research in the types of insight and knowledge that architects create? That is the central question raised by this book. It acts as the introductory overview for Ashgate's major new series, 'Design Research in Architecture' which has been created in order to establish a firm basis for this emerging field of investigation within architecture. While there have been numerous architects-scholars since the Renaissance who have relied upon the interplay of drawings, models, textual analysis, intellectual ideas and cultural insights to scrutinise the discipline, nonetheless, until recently, there has been a reluctance within architectural culture to acknowledge and accept the role of design research as part of the discourse. However, in many countries around the world, one of the key changes in architecture and architectural education over the last decade has been the acceptance of design as a legitimate research area in its own right and this new series provides a forum where the best proponents of architectural design research can publish their work. This volume provides a broad overview on design research that supports and amplifies the different volumes coming out in the book series. It brings together leading architects and academics to discuss the more general issues involved in design research. At the end, there is an Indicative Bibliography which alludes to a long history of architectural books which can be seen as being in the spirit of design research. [less]

It exudes Cook's delight andcatholic appetite for the architectural. Readers are provided withperceptive insights at every turn. The book features some of thegreatest and most intriguing drawings by architects, ranging fromFrank Lloyd Wright, Heath-Robinson, Le Corbusier, and Otto Wagnerto Frank Gehry, Zaha Hadid, Coop Himmelb(l)au, Arata Isozaki, EricOwen Moss, Bernard Tschumi, and Lebbeus Woods; as well as key worksby Cook and other members of the original Archigram group. For this new edition, Cook provides a substantial new chapterthat charts the speed at which the trajectory of drawing is moving.It reflects the increasing sophistication of available software andalso the ways in which 'hand drawing' and the 'digital' are beingeclipsed by new hybrids--injecting a new momentum to drawing.These 'crossovers' provide a whole new territory as attempts aremade to release drawing from the boundaries of a solitary moment, asingle-viewing position, or a single referential language.Featuring the likes of Toyo Ito, Perry Culper, Izaskun Chinchilla,Kenny Tsui, Ali Rahim, John Berglund, and Lorene Faure, it leads tofascinating insights into the effect that medium has upon intentionand definition of an idea or a place. Is a pencil drawing moreattuned to a certain architecture than an ink drawing, or is aparticular colour evocative of a certain atmosphere? In a worldwhere a Mayer drawing is creatively contributing somethingdifferent from a Rhino drawing, there is much to demand of futuretechniques. [less]

Experience of Architecture, The

Henry Plummer

2016    288 Pages    (Thames & Hudson)

How does the experience of turning a door handle, opening a door from one space into another, affect us? It is no wonder that the door, one of the most elemental architectural forms, has such metaphorical richness. But even on a purely physical human level, the cold touch of a brass handle or the swish of a sliding screen gives rise to an emotional reaction, sometimes modest, occasionally profound. This book aims to understand how these everyday acts are influenced by architectural form, a [...]

How does the experience of turning a door handle, opening a door from one space into another, affect us? It is no wonder that the door, one of the most elemental architectural forms, has such metaphorical richness. But even on a purely physical human level, the cold touch of a brass handle or the swish of a sliding screen gives rise to an emotional reaction, sometimes modest, occasionally profound. This book aims to understand how these everyday acts are influenced by architectural form, a concept that is vital for all architects to grasp. It considers how specifically built elements and volumes, taken from a wide array of buildings and settings around the world, can affect our powers of decision. From hand-carved stairs in Greek villages to free-floating catwalks, from the elegant processional steps of Renaissance Italy to Frank Lloyd Wright's masterly manipulation of form, all provide very different experiences of stepping from one level to the next, and all affect our experience of that space. Seamlessly integrating text and image, each chapter focuses on a different aspect of our daily interactions with architecture, looking at stairs, floors and paths, moving interior spaces, perception and perspective, transparency and the relationship between a building and its setting. This book is not just for architects and designers engaged in the production of space, but for all those who seek a richer understanding of their place in the built world. [less]

Fate of Place, The

In this imaginative and comprehensive study, Edward Casey, one of the most incisive interpreters of the Continental philosophical tradition, offers a philosophical history of the evolving conceptualizations of place and space in Western thought.

In this imaginative and comprehensive study, Edward Casey, one of the most incisive interpreters of the Continental philosophical tradition, offers a philosophical history of the evolving conceptualizations of place and space in Western thought. Not merely a presentation of the ideas of other philosophers, The Fate of Place is acutely sensitive to silences, absences, and missed opportunities in the complex history of philosophical approaches to space and place. A central theme is the increasing neglect of place in favor of space from the seventh century A.D. onward, amounting to the virtual exclusion of place by the end of the eighteenth century. Casey begins with mythological and religious creation stories and the theories of Plato and Aristotle and then explores the heritage of Neoplatonic, medieval, and Renaissance speculations about space. He presents an impressive history of the birth of modern spatial conceptions in the writings of Newton, Descartes, Leibniz, and Kant and delineates the evolution of twentieth-century phenomenological approaches in the work of Husserl, Merleau-Ponty, Bachelard, and Heidegger. In the book's final section, Casey explores the postmodern theories of Foucault, Derrida, Tschumi, Deleuze and Guattari, and Irigaray. [less]

In past years, architects have been confronted with a changed market, changed sets of tasks and also new requirements. Which strategies can they adopt to get commissions or spark interest in their projects? With selected examples, the author analyses the processes of individual architects since the 1950s. Beginning with the commencement of marketing in the North American post-war era he proceeds to then cast his view to contemporary times. Transformations in society and politics, the changed requirements of clients, and also the crisis in the economy and financial circles all influence the professional existence of architects. While pure construction itself was the focus in previous times, today's architects must adopt a wide variety of roles in relation to clients - ranging from consultant to mediator and brand designer. The book is intended to inspire architects to consider new options and unusual paths. [less]
