Interpretation in Architecture
OfferingÂ an in-depthÂ consideration of the impact which humanities have had on the processes of architecture and design, this book asks how we canÂ restore the traditional dialogue between intellectual enquiry in the humanities and design creativity.
Written by leading academics in the fields of history, theory and philosophy of design, theseÂ essays draw profound meanings from cultural practices and beliefs. These are as diverse as the designs they inspire and include religious, mythic, poetic, political, and philosophical references.
This timely and important bookÂ is not a benign reflection on humanities' role in architectural design but a direct response to the increased marginalization of humanities in a technology driven world. The prioritization of technology leaves critical questions unanswered about the relationships between information and knowledge, transcription and translation, and how emerging technologies can usefully contribute to a deeper understanding of our design culture.
