Arquitectura - Teoria.
Biblioteca A-72.01 BOD
Issues surrounding the human body, with its intellectual and sensory capacities are recurring themes in architecture theory. In a contemporary reading on the very notion of 'body' it is necessary to understand that there are many bodies: individual, collective, mystical, corporate, institutional, animal, even the prosthetic body and the ethnological body made up of movements of slowness and speed. The Body in Architecture presents a collection of both theoretical essays and architecture, urban & film based projects. The projects presented in the collection advance new ways of envisaging the city ranging from analytic apparatuses of viewing to design experimentations. The section on film presents innovative interpretations of forms and relations. Contributors include M. Christine Boyer, Karsten Harries, Anthony Vidler, Arie Graafland, Stefano Boeri, the video artist Dryden Goodwin and Rem Koolhaas.
This is the second volume in the new Delft School of Design Series on Architecture and Urbanism.
