  The Organic Architecture and Creative Residential Design of Robert Oshatz
I see architecture as a synthesis of logic and emotion, exploring and fulfilling the dreams, fantasies and realities of my clients, whether they are individuals, corporate, or community identities.
At the time, organic architecture was not universally appreciated in America and he was not well known outside of the organic movement.
This is the main principle for your architectural work: here an architect finds inspiration, here new ideas and variants of their realization appear, here fresh, original and different projects appear as a consequence of the originality and individuality of the customers.

In Contrasts (1836) he put forth the idea that the Middle Ages, in its way of life and art, was superior to his own time and ought to be imitated.
He amplified his ideas in The True Principles of Pointed or Christian Architecture (1841), propounding that not only must Gothic detail be authentic but that the contemporary architect should achieve the structural clarity and high level of craftsmanship that were found in the Middle Ages by using the methods of medieval builders.
However, the ideals of earlier theoreticians, the clear expression of structure and materials have influenced modern architecture.

 [No title]
Architectural theorists have a manifest interest in learning about the efforts of analytic aestheticians to address such topics as the essential nature of art and the identification of a given artwork.
In what little discussion there is of architecture in analytic aesthetics, the default position is apparently that architecture is so close a relative of the plastic arts (painting, sculpture) as to warrant the subsumption of the former under the latter.
Architecture is apparently unlike the other arts in that we tend to associate it with a social function.

 Monastic Art and Architecture
Western monastic art and architecture, as widespread and various as Christianity, takes its special character from the aspirations of members of monastic religious communities who have turned their thoughts away from the world and dedicated themselves to living under a regula ("rule").
The architectural implications of the Rule of Saint Benedict are perhaps most fully spelled out in the ideal plan of Saint Gall (c.820), Switzerland.
In fact, the greatest surviving examples of monastic art and architecture are directly related to the fabric of the church building and to the liturgical rites in it.

Gothic architecture was not greatly developed in Italy; a notable exception is the cathedral of Milan, built in part by foreign architects.
Vignola did significant work in Rome in the latter part of the 16th cent., while in N Italy the formal classicism of Palladio was a potent factor in the spreading of Renaissance architecture throughout Europe.

Frampton treats the history of 20th century architecture as a battleground of ideas, emphasizing polemics and architectural movements as much as buildings.
Although the SCI-Arc history-theory department’s treatment of architectural history is closer to Frampton than Curtis in its concern with theoretical and polemical issues, we value and recommend the Curtis text for its clarity, completeness, and the wealth of images it provides.
The purpose of this seminar is to (re)introduce graduate students with backgrounds in architecture to different and sometimes conflicting approaches to the analysis of the disciplines, discourses, and objects of the field.

As an arcaheology student studying vernacular architecture, I found this particular text to be a waste of time.
Architectural Theory from 1965-1995 is complex, nuanced, and somewhat pretentious.
Part of the problem is that contemporary Architectural Theory (and I would call this "Postmodern" theory) is connected to Continental Philosophy, which is also quite pretentious and often inaccessible to the vast majority of readers.

Architecture views (alternate representations of the architecture of a system) are, in this sense, models.
On the other hand, most formal specification techniques that offer a very rich and robust reasoning method are "complete" (or at least "closed" with respect to their domain of discourse and set of reasoning methods).
For example, sensor processing subsystems tend to use pipe-and-filter architectures; their costs and schedules tend to be driven by the complexity of filter algorithms and by overall throughput requirements (and generally not by user-interface considerations).
