Architectural System Structures: Integrating Design by Kasper Sánchez Vibæk

By Kasper Sánchez Vibæk

This e-book proposes a method constitution in architectural layout that conceptualises a systemic point in structure and building that lies among normal development strategies and particular architectural effects. so that it will make this sort of method constitution operational, the elaboration of a version seeks at the one hand to analytically seize and however to give the chance to actively paintings with approach buildings as a part of architectural layout. Kasper Sanchez Vibaek's ambition is to bridge an obvious and lengthening hole among architectural ideation and how those principles are dropped at lifestyles as actual actual manifestations of our equipped atmosphere.

In line with the so-called structures sciences the booklet rejects the frequent medical view that the measure of element ‘automatically’ complements knowing and explanative strength of advanced phenomena. It establishes the belief of a platforms view on constructions and architectural layout that by using versatile constituent components enables dialogue and selection making approximately how architectural wholes are correctly prepare as assemblages of what the present and destiny development is able to producing.

Based on numerous years of exact examine into the architectural effects of development while uncovered to industrialised construction thoughts and platforms, Architectural approach Structures represents a brand new option to examine what's already there and comes in handy for all these attracted to the strategies of architectural construction and realisation particularly connected to time, position and cultural context.

Example text

This marked the establishment of the two from then on clearly separated disciplines of architecture and engineering with roots respectively in liberal and mechanical arts. : 5). The Classical techne was now fragmented into different fields of knowledge. In the nineteenth century in line with the breakthrough in the mechanical sciences the seeds were sown for the cult of the machine that culminated in the modernists of the early twentieth century. The emergence of industrialised materials and techniques were praised to such extent that the status of architecture, according to Hartoonian, was reduced to that of a mere technical discipline focusing on production.

The development sketched above shows that while there are evidently advantages in following a common structure it is very difficult – and probably impossible – to come up with an ideal or definitive model that everybody can agree on even on a national level. Internationally this would become even more complex. Organisation of construction is culturally founded and changes furthermore over time and therefore needs to some extent to be project-specific. In addition, industrialisation and more integrated building products have moved part of the design work to sub-consultants, suppliers or manufacturers.

11). Through examples from Palladio’s prescriptions for the design of villas Hartoonian shows how symmetry (in the modern sense of the word) as an organising principle in architecture is not only about aesthetics but equally has useful structural implications in the construction of buildings. The unity contained in techne is, as Hartoonian points out, theoretically broken up in the early renaissance by, for example, Leone Battista Alberti who distinguishes between lineaments and matter/structure.
