Where the Spell is Chanted (Fallacies of Contemporary Architectural Discourses)

Where the Spell is Chanted (Fallacies of Contemporary Architectural Discourses) AbstractThe new design approaches that prevail today suggest a certain shift in the way architecture is conceived, materialized and described: architecture is now “animate,” “animalistic,” “evolutionary.” The leading fallacy towards which these words are paving the way is that form can be self-formatted; that new machines, robots and three-dimensional (3D) printers – which are now themselves regarded as animate – could substitute for human labor and create surplus value – contrary to what Karl Marx’s analysis on machines has claimed. This paper focuses on the elucidation of such fallacies: on their exposition, their challenging. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Architecture and Culture Taylor & Francis
