Surface Architecture (MIT Press)

By David Leatherbarrow

Visually, many modern constructions both mirror their platforms of creation or keep in mind previous types and motifs. This department among creation and illustration is in many ways an extension of that among modernity and culture. during this e-book, David Leatherbarrow and Mohsen Mostafavi discover ways in which layout can reap the benefits of creation tools such that structure is neither self sustaining of nor ruled by means of technology.Leatherbarrow and Mostafavi commence with the theoretical and sensible isolation of the development floor because the topic of architectural layout. The autonomy of the outside, the "free facade," presumes a contrast among the structural and nonstructural parts of the development, among the body and the cladding. as soon as the surface of the development turned self sufficient of its constitution, it can simply to boot grasp like a curtain, or like garments. the point of interest of the connection among constitution and pores and skin is the architectural floor. In tracing the dealing with of this floor, the authors study either modern constructions and people of the new earlier. Architects mentioned contain Albert Kahn, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Alison and Peter Smithson, Alejandro de l. a. Sota, Robert Venturi, Jacques Herzog, and Pierre de Meuron.The homes of a building's floor -- if it is made up of concrete, steel, glass, or different fabrics -- aren't only superficial; they build the spatial results wherein structure communicates. via its surfaces a construction broadcasts either its autonomy and its participation in its surroundings.
