Triumphs of Change: Architecture Reconsidered

Triumphs of Change: Architecture Reconsidered

English | 2011 | ISBN: 3034306725 | 69 Pages | PDF | 16 MB

This book is born out of a sense of scepticism with self-indulgence in architecture. It seeks a new prescription for readdressing architecture as an expression of human need. Sense, Sagacity and the Sublime define the architectural realities of its organizing principle, while Gods and Goddesses; Princes and Prelates; Corporate Clients and Citizens identify strategic shifts in Western Civilization. The book carries the judgment of democracy derived from Greek Goddess Athena. This is followed by the measured building world of Le Thoronet which advances unswervingly towards the Paris Opera - the greatest processional triumph of the 19th Century. The finale deals with Frank Lloyd Wright at ?Falling Water?, Le Corbusier at Ronchamp, Renzo Piano at Kansai Airport, Japan, and Santiago Calatrava's winged vehemence at Milwaukee, USA.
The book concludes with a thoughtful reminder - emphasizing the values of human engagement while providing philosophical support for the social contract in architecture.
