Architecture's Exodus and the Role of Dissident Practitioner

Architecture's Exodus and the Role of Dissident Practitioner Architecture’s safety and purification embodied in Alberti’s registers of building, drawing and text is disturbed. The disturbance and pollution of architecture comes from potent life forces and changing conditions that encounter materiality of the world - occupation, site and construction. These material forms have architectural consequences and possess the agency that causes such effects. Resistance to architecture’s registers also comes from practices that engage with changing notions of materiality and create distributed effects, which resist a permanent sense of a purified home of architecture. Such practices deploy gentle strategies of resistance in order to displace the viewer, tear the sensible from the sensible and uphold the tension between the art and politics of resistance. The work of Antoni Malinowski is one such practice that challenges architecture’s materiality through shimmering and scattering strategies. Another example is an interdisciplinary installation, “A Temporary Urban Garden: Teasing Adonis,” that reinterprets ancient Greek myth in view of the exiled citizen’s position in contemporary Athens. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Architecture and Culture Taylor & Francis

Abstract

Architecture’s safety and purification embodied in Alberti’s registers of building, drawing and text is disturbed. The disturbance and pollution of architecture comes from potent life forces and changing conditions that encounter materiality of the world - occupation, site and construction. These material forms have architectural consequences and possess the agency that causes such effects. Resistance to architecture’s registers also comes from practices that engage with changing notions of materiality and create distributed effects, which resist a permanent sense of a purified home of architecture. Such practices deploy gentle strategies of resistance in order to displace the viewer, tear the sensible from the sensible and uphold the tension between the art and politics of resistance. The work of Antoni Malinowski is one such practice that challenges architecture’s materiality through shimmering and scattering strategies. Another example is an interdisciplinary installation, “A Temporary Urban Garden: Teasing Adonis,” that reinterprets ancient Greek myth in view of the exiled citizen’s position in contemporary Athens.

Abstract

Architecture’s safety and purification embodied in Alberti’s registers of building, drawing and text is disturbed. The disturbance and pollution of architecture comes from potent life forces and changing conditions that encounter materiality of the world - occupation, site and construction. These material forms have architectural consequences and possess the agency that causes such effects. Resistance to architecture’s registers also comes from practices that engage with changing notions of materiality and create distributed effects, which resist a permanent sense of a purified home of architecture. Such practices deploy gentle strategies of resistance in order to displace the viewer, tear the sensible from the sensible and uphold the tension between the art and politics of resistance. The work of Antoni Malinowski is one such practice that challenges architecture’s materiality through shimmering and scattering strategies. Another example is an interdisciplinary installation, “A Temporary Urban Garden: Teasing Adonis,” that reinterprets ancient Greek myth in view of the exiled citizen’s position in contemporary Athens.
