9780262581714: Ethical Function of Architecture
Críticas:

"The stirring gift of a mind like Karsten Harries allows a link betweenarchitecture and philosophy. In our splintered, individualist age hereminds us it is impossible to think without generalities." Steven Holl, Architect

Reseña del editor:

Winner of the 8th Annual AIA International Architecture Book Award for CriticismCan architecture help us find our place and way in today's complex world? Can it return individuals to a whole, to a world, to a community? Developing Giedion' s claim that contemporary architecture's main task is to interpret a way of life valid for our time, philosopher Karsten Harries answers that architecture should serve a common ethos. But if architecture is to meet that task, it first has to free itself from the dominant formalist approach, and get beyond the notion that its purpose is to produce endless variations of the decorated shed.In a series of cogent and balanced arguments, Harries questions the premises on which architects and theorists have long relied -- premises which have contributed to architecture's current identity crisis and marginalization. He first criticizes the aesthetic approach, focusing on the problems of decoration and ornament. He then turns to the language of architecture. If the main task of architecture is indeed interpretation, in just what sense can it be said to speak, and what should it be speaking about? Expanding upon suggestions made by Martin Heidegger, Harries also considers the relationship of building to the idea and meaning of dwelling.Architecture, Harries observes, has a responsibility to community; but its ethical function is inevitably also political, He concludes by examining these seemingly paradoxical functions.
