  • Court: The Place of Law and the Space of the City

    Scott, Luke (2016)
    The Court is an archetype central to the notion of the polis, and indeed to the city as a political construction. Its emergence as a type, as distinct from other forms of civic architecture, can be observed in the later 19th century, the fundamental spatial principles of which remain relatively unchanged in modern courtrooms today. Rather than regarding it as a type unto itself, however, this essay will critically posit the Court as the crucible of all socio-cultural built archetypes. By exam...

    Bringing it Back Home: The Urbanization of the British Shopping Mall as the West Goes East

    Jewell, Nicholas (2016)
    The objective of this research is the formation of a critical position by which the repositioning of the British shopping mall from a suburban to an urban situation can be understood.

Accordingly, many architects have focused their interest on Far Eastern models of urban complexity drawn from the unprecedented urb...

The local municipality had decided that the Jewish community was not building in a ‘Jewish enough’ style, although it was not at all clear what this style ought to be. This debate over how Jews ought to build raged across Europe throughout that decade, and beyond. This essay revisits that particular historical pro...

    No Fixed Form: The Infra-Éireann – Making Ireland Modern Pavilion and the Sites of Modernity

    Boyd, Gary Archibald; McLaughlin, John (2018)
    This paper explores the relationship between architectural design and research in the context of a particular example, the development of the Irish pavilion for the 14th architectural biennale in Venice 2014 (Infra-Éireann) and its reiteration and expansion in Ireland for the State’s centennial celebrations 1916–2016 (Making Ireland Modern). Originally responding to Rem Koolhaas’s call to investigate the international absorption of modernity, the pavilion sought to engage with the properties ...
