Time in Modernist Architecture

An Approach

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

    Abstract

    Two propositions underpin this paper. The first is thematic: there is a largely unexamined temporality specific to modernist architecture, one independent of movement. A close reading of certain projects from the perspective of time may reveal the devices and formal moves deployed to achieve the characteristic effects of that temporality. The second proposition is methodological: that the analysis of certain works of architecture as manifestations of design-led research reveal discipline-specific problems. These research problems are rendered as form relations, composition strategies, and spatial effects. Variations as to how such problems are responded to in turn constitute contributions to architectural knowledge.
