 Architecture & ideology by Roger Kimball   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-01)
If the architecture we have been accustomed to calling modernist errs in the direction of severity and hyper-rationalism, much of the architecture that has arisen to challenge it has erred in the direction of silliness, grim or fatuous as the case may be.
Scott speaks partly as an historian of architecture, partly as a custodian of the humanist values that were articulated with luxurious richness in Renaissance architecture.
“Architecture,” as Scott put it, “is subservient to the general uses of mankind.” We approach architecture with what Scott, echoing the famous Kantian formula, calls a “disinterested desire for beauty,” but this desire is tethered by continual reference to the quotidian inventory of physical, psychological, and social imperatives.

 93.01.03: Play on Architecture
Since architecture affects each person daily, from the home in which one lives, to the place in which one works or goes to school, to the community in which one roams, it would be useful to have a language with which to communicate about architecture.
I want to create an introductory unit on architecture with the emphasis on the art of, rather than the science of architecture; the feeling, rather than the thinking that architecture evokes; the senses, rather than the intuition, which architecture involves.
Architecture always implies “more than its obvious and immediate meaning.” (Which leads me to the realization of why architecture, a symbolic art, does not usually exist in our curriculum!) Through drama, movement, and architecture (as a symbolic language) I see opportunities for people to understand and connect with architecture in new and creative ways.

 thresholds 23 "In Aleijadinho's Shadow"
While modern architecture in Brazil is frequently characterized by the construction of Brasília in the late fifties and early sixties, Vargas formed the alliance between nationalist politics and architectural culture twenty-five years earlier with the design of the Ministry of Culture, Education, and Health (1937-43) in Rio de Janeiro.
From the outside, Brazilian architecture was seen as derivative of the hegemonic lineage of European modernism that drew from nineteenth century academicism and developed into the "international style." For Costa, however, it was important to establish a national narrative in order to assert that modernism was neither imported nor regionalized but rather endemic to Brazil.
While architecture and the narratives of its makers are clearly intertwined, it is interesting to consider how architectural narratives position us as subjects as clearly as architectural space positions us as bodies.

 2001 Laureate Announcement
The purpose of the Pritzker Architecture Prize is to honor annually a living architect (or architects) whose built work demonstrates a combination of those qualities of talent, vision and commitment, which has produced consistent and significant contributions to humanity and the built environment through the art of architecture.
The field of architecture was chosen by the Pritzker family because of their keen interest in building due to their involvement with developing the Hyatt Hotels around the world; also because architecture was a creative endeavor not included in the Nobel Prizes.
The jury is pleased to award the 2001 Pritzker Architecture Prize to them for advancing the art of architecture, a significant contribution to furthering the definition of architecture as one of the premier art forms in this new century and millennium.

 The impact of Islamic & Arabic arts on the West
The idea of a traditional Islamic art and architecture that began in 7th-century Syria and grew to encompass the art and architecture of lands from the Atlantic to the Indian oceans, write Blair and Bloom (1994), is a creation of late 19th- and 20th-century Western thought.
Blair and Bloom note that a painting such as The Reception of a Venetian Embassy in Damascus, attributed to the school of Bellini in the early 16th century, was undoubtedly the work of an artist familiar with the topography and monuments of Damascus.
It should be noted that while the arts in 19th- and 20th-century European and American countries were feeling the influence of Islamic arts and architecture, the reverse was occurring as well.

 Friedrich Gilly, Essays on Architecture, 1796-1799 (Getty Bookstore)
When Friedrich Gilly died in 1800 at the age of twenty-eight, his architectural career spanned less than a decade and none of his major designs had been built.
Nevertheless, his ideas so influenced Berlin architecture for the next century that today he is widely regarded as the founder of that city's modern architectural tradition.
The answer lies in part in Gilly's innovative architectural program, which attempted to graft the more eloquent aspects of French Neoclassicism onto a rational Germanic tradition of logical and formally pure design.
