  Pound's Quest for the Paradiso
As he grows increasingly suspicious of this notion, and of architecture's ability to "awaken" the masses and to reform institutions, he begins to invest his cultural critique in poetry--especially in The Cantos, where the architectural images he uses are fragmented, but nonetheless powerful in their socio-politically/historically significance.
Architecture serves especially well as a dialectical image for Pound because of the multiple facets of its language, and because of its obvious ubiquity.
As Keith Tuma explains, "Architecture is important to Pound because it is intimately connected with the daily life of the masses" (1990: 86), and whatever most often confronts the masses, Pound may have surmised, has the most power to change consciousnesses.

 American Domestic Architecture ~ Chapter One
Architectural publications had a dramatic impact particularly in rural areas, where no architectural services were available, permitting builders in the country to erect the latest designs.
In the case of Los Angeles, a functional architecture with flat roofs, stucco exterior walls, open courtyards, patios, pergolas, and use of glass window-walls and doors developed that was appropriate for both the mild climate and the out-door lifestyle.
Architectural historians should be allowed many diversions, but their first responsibility is to show how, through a compelling rendering of the elements of architecture and their assembly, vital ideas become transmuted into vivid and memorable form.

I believe that the architectural scheme which we are working our for the Palisades Group will prove to be one of the most interesting and talked of ideas that has ever been used in Exposition architecture.
Many new buildings had to be erected and the opportunity was seized to illustrate in their architectural treatment the progress from the Indian pueblos of the pre-Spanish period to the present time with its Moderne influence.
In working out the architectural scheme of the new exposition he has sought to show by modified examples the progressive steps in the development from the pre-Spanish period to the present time and through the inspiration of the old forms and influence of modern ideas to produce a new and distinctive California style.

 Paolo Soleri   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-18)
As much a visionary as he is an architect, Paolo Soleri, born in Turin in 1919, worked with Frank Lloyd Wright in the late 1940s and went on to develop his own organically expressive architecture.
Since 1935 he has been involved almost exclusively with the design of alternative urban planning models.
Based on Soleri's concept of "Arcology," architecture sympathetic to ecology, Arcosanti embodies Soleri's urban ideals: to maximize the interaction and accessibility associated with an urban environment; to minimize the use of energy, raw materials, and land, thus reducing waste and environmental pollution; and to allow interaction with the surrounding natural environment.

 Building in China; Henry K. Murphy's "Adaptive Architecture," 1914-1935; Jeffrey W. Cody
Building in China is about striking an architectural balance between the pull of monumental tradition and the push of technological novelty.
Murphy's buildings were more than vessels for either aesthetic visions or technical expertise; inadvertently they became political emblems, as Chinese rulers such as Chiang Kai-shek and Sun Yat-sen's son called on Murphy for city planning advice to complement their hopes for urban reconstruction.
Jeffrey W. Cody is associate professor in the Department of Architecture at the Chinese University of Hong Kong, where he has taught architectural history since 1995.

It is easy to say that the art of architecture is everything, but how difficult it is to introduce the conscious intervention of an artistic imagination without straying from the context of life.
The practice of architecture is a collective enterprise, with many individuals of various disciplines and talents working closely together.
And from the commissioning to the completion of a project, there are also the many individuals for whom architects work, whose contribution to quality is frequently as crucial as that of the architect.
