Precisions : Architektur zwischen Wissenschaft und Kunst = architecture between sciences and the arts by Ákos Moravánszky( Book )

5 editions published in 2008 in English and German and held by 100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Where is the place of architecture? Closer to the arts or to the sciences? And has there been a shift of this position over the past years due to technological evolution? - The term "precision" serves as a starting point for observing the influence of scientific methods on architecture and art. Well-known authors explore the subject from different angles: from digital design strategies in lightweight construction to filigree architectural projects. Practical examples are flanked by essays on art and architectural theory, which also provide a prospect for the future of digitalization and cybernetics."--Jacket

Sehnsucht : deutscher Beitrag auf der 12. internationalen Architekturausstellung : la Biennale die Venezia 2010 = The book of architectural longings : German contribution to the 12th International Architecture Exhibition( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in German and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Entitled SEHNSUCHT the exhibition in the German Pavilion at the Biennale 2010 in Venice seeks to uncover the emotional heart of architecture. This is done not by representing architecture through models, plans and photography, but by creating atmospheric spaces. Exhibited in the main space of the pavilion are interpretations of the theme of "longing" by a selection of German architects and creative minds from the arts world."--Publisher's website
Architecture at service : a profession between luxury provision, public agency, and counter-culture( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When defining architecture, the debate codified in mid-nineteenth century as “Architecture: Art or Profession” is far from dead. The emphasis on the primacy of the program, function, and technological problem solving is still robust; though there is no consensus among its champions about the addressee of architectural design. Should architecture be serving the interests of the client, the users, or the vision of the architect? Should its primary duty be to the profession, the debates in the media, or the symbolic client, namely the public at large? The opponents of this faction, in turn, insist on artistic freedom from such constraints and call for the autonomy of the discipline. Art-architects as well as practitioners of architectural history, aesthetic philosophy, and semiotics dominate this school of thought. These questions are highly charged with political and ideological leaning, full of consequences for teaching, practice, and society, and therefore in need of dialectical interrogation. Dialectic IV convenes contributions with new takes on the long-held proposition that architects are providers of design services. They service everyone from the status quo all the way to the subaltern. We know well how architects have historically fashioned themselves to be able to procure the most valued building commissions a people have to offer. There are temples, churches and shrines, palaces and private villas, and surely monuments, state institutions and corporate headquarters. But how have the members of the same profession managed to fashion themselves as the custodians of the public good?"--Publisher

Dialectic( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The crafts, according to standard narration, have been in decline in Western societies since the weakening of guilds, the freedom of trade guaranteed by the French and American Revolution, and the rollout of industrialisation during the nineteenth century. Conversely, its endangered position in industrialised urban capitalism has transformed craft also into a site of resistance.With the digital update of the twenty first century, this issue of 'Dialectic' asks for the critical potential of a discussion (reintroduction?) of the concept of craft into the maelstrom of contemporary spatial practice and current architectural thinking. Ten position pieces by international architects, activists, theoreticians, and makers approach the issue of 'craft' from dialectical perspectives. This is the debate about the current challenges and opportunities of the material, social, cultural, and aesthetic interrelationships of craft in architecture
