  • The Distracted Believer and the Return to the First Basilica: Marqués de Ureña’s Reflexiones sobre la Arquitectura, Ornato, y Música del Templo of 1785

    Macsotay, Tomas (2018)
    A key text on Spanish architectural reform, Marqués de Ureña’s Reflexiones sobre la arquitectura, ornato, y música del templo of 1785, contains a rich and layered discussion of the doctrinal and aesthetic foundations of ecclesiastical architecture. Ureña’s Reflexiones appears at a moment of transition for Spanish architectural history by calling for a return to the ancient basilica type. The paper reconstructs a discussion waged by Ureña and his contemporaries on problems within the contempor...

    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

    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...

    Handymen, Hippies and Healing: Social Transformation through the DIY Movement (1940s to 1970s) in North America

    Smith, Cathy D (2014)
    This paper explores the relation between the ‘DIY’ (‘do-it-yourself’) movement and ‘DIY architecture’, and the notion of social transformation, in examples of DIY manuals and discourse of North America drawn from the 1940s to the 1970s. The DIY movement emerged as a significant phenomenon in North America of the 1950s, where it was associated with a mainstream audience and a residential market. By the 1960s, the DIY approach was embraced by the North American counterculture as a self-sustaini...

    To See (Like) a Crowd

    Ziada, Hazem (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 ...
