The Architectural Other

The Architectural Other Abstract Jacques Lacan defines the Other as the linguistic superstructure of the unconscious. It is the collective network of relations into which the subject is inserted, as the subject is inserted into language. It is the matrix of laws, rules and customs that define the subject. The individual subject finds itself inserted into the symbolic order, the field of the Other, which is the unconscious, and which determines the reality, identity, and desire of the subject. What effect does collective life have on the psyche of the individual? Does collective life (civilization) have its discontents? Architecture is managed by committees, writers, and media spokespeople. What is the role of the individual in the collective life of architecture? Architecture enacts a struggle between the maintenance and dislocation of the individual and collective life. How does the struggle between maintenance and dislocation, individual psyche and collective Other, play out in buildings and cities? http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Architecture and Culture Taylor & Francis
