Perspecta 34: Temporary Architecture

Perspecta 34: Temporary Architecture


Biklen, Noah K

ed. Pap. Cambridge, 2003

Book ID: 60058

Perspecta 34 explores the temporary relationship between architecture and the larger contexts within which social crisis and cultural transformation take place. The issue examines many questions associated with modernism, including the limits of utopian urban planning, and considers alternatives to space as the dominant organizing concept for architecture. It views the contemporary as a fluid practice in which games, intuition, collective imagination, and style emerge alongside conventional architectural approaches as ways to comprehend and shape the temporary landscape
