  • The Fall of the Tektōn and The Rise of the Architect: On The Greek Origins of Architectural Craftsmanship

    Holst, Jonas (2017)
    The origins of architectural craftsmanship in ancient Greece are to be found in the archaic arts of tectonics. The first Greek architects, appearing under that name around the 6th century BC, rose out of and based their work on this age-old tectonic tradition, which semantically underwent a transformation during the time from Homer to Plato, the latter relegating the tektones to a lower rank in the order of craftsmanship. Through a detailed reading of the ancient Greek testimonies of the tect...

    To See (Like) a Crowd

    Hazem Ziada (2015)
    This paper explores the dynamics through which design drawings structure spatial strategies, particularly those with an agenda for socio-political change, while interrogating the drawings’ impacts on subjectivity. It dissects an early Soviet architectural drawing addressing the 1920s-30s' crowd-design-problem': using architectural space to generate a robust intersubjectivity in mass crowds. Revolutionary Soviet artists challenged inherited graphic regimes of viewing crowds from an alienating ...

    From the Grand Tour to the Grand Hotel: The Birth of the Hospitality Industry in the Grand Duchy of Tuscany between the 17th and 19th Centuries

    Susini, Fabiana (2018)
    This article investigates the architecture of different types of accommodations in the Grand Duchy of Tuscany between the 17th and early 19th centuries. Buildings used as paid accommodation facilities such as inns, hotels, and guest houses were utilitarian buildings that reflected the tastes of their time and the customs and rituals related to travel, and thus had particular architectural features. This work proposes an analysis of the architectural properties of those accommodation facilitie...
