Terms of Appropriation

  • Publisher: Routledge

This collection focuses on how architectural material is transformed, revised, swallowed whole, plagiarized, or in any other way appropriated. It charts new territory within this still unexplored yet highly topical area of study by establishing a shared vocabulary with which to discuss, or contest, the workings of appropriation as a vital and progressive aspect of architectural discourse. Written by a group of rising scholars in the field of architectural history and criticism, the chapters cover a range of architectural subjects that are linked in their investigations of how architects engage with their predecessors.

Where are the Utopian Visionaries?

"In this radical book, architects, historians, and theorists survey the inventive, low cost work being done in obscure places to make architecture into a force for sustainable growth and social justice. The efforts are Utopian not charitable in aim. This new breed of architect-activists is endeavoring to diversity if not reinvent their profession by engaging in an "exchange" of ideas, techniques, and visions of right living with people almost always relegated to silence and invisibility. The book opens with theoretical essays, each specially commissioned, from a stellar cast. Michael Sorkin assesses "the site of the social" in architecture; David Gersten draws on John Hejduk's legacy to cons...

Imagining Architecture Beyond the End Times

Imagining Architecture Beyond the End Times, captures the reflections of a generation caught between the failures of utopian thought and cynical reason. The book seeks to retool old means in search of new ends; of new stars by which to navigate in an age of dis-aster, literally, an age without stars. The eight essays presented here are the result of a closely shared conversation. They are the revised labor of a week of collective living, discussing the times in which we live and in which the task of practicing architecture is historically situated. They present differing reactions to the state of the present and to the conception of time and history as determinants of architectural imagination. They variously propose critique, provocation, aphorism and manifesto, with sentiments of confidence, anger, retrenchment, modesty, irony and hope. They are imaginative gestures aimed at kick-starting the faltering motor of history, in a world that appears too frequently, as the saying goes, as being blown backwards into the future.

Computer Methods for Architects

Computer Methods for Architects deals with the use of computers in the architecture profession. The text explores where and how computers can and cannot help. The book begins with an explanation of how the majority of the architects around the world were once reluctant to use a computer.

The next part of the book discusses the advantages that a computer can offer an architect, as well as some disadvantages. The next chapter talks about how a computer can handle the files of an entire office. Discussions on the computer's database, proper selection of programs, and simulation techniques are also included in the book. The text finally talks about what the future may hold for computers and architects. This book caters to architects, as it talks about what a person in the field could encounter while using computers.

The Crs Team and the Business of Architecture

"This book about CRS will fill an important gap in architectural history. It explores the ways architects of the mid-twentieth century developed methods that allowed professionals to analyze projects systematically rather than relying on the traditional combination of information and intuition. CRS played an important role in the profession's progress by pioneering "programming" to tailor buildings more precisely to the clients' and occupants' needs."
