Example text

There is a curious air of both over-intellectualization and mystification, of opening and closing, revealing and hiding. Much of today’s theorizing seems to be a matter of taking distance from the reality of architecture more than attempting to understand its essence. (Pallasmaa 2005, 66) Plato’s idea that the conceptual world is superior to the world that we experience via our senses has had too great an influence on the Western way of prioritizing knowledge. But according to Geoffrey Broadbent (1995), an architect cannot work on a “pure thinking” level or ignore the world of the senses, because everything he or she does will affect the senses of everyone who uses those buildings and environments.

There is a great risk of this procedure leading to architecture that is less well thought out and to lower quality construction with more frequent technical errors. The essential pendulum movement in the design method between the entirety and the details can be lost when the responsibility is split up, both in the design and construction phases. A genius, administrator, or an engineer of fortifications? The development of the architectural profession has undoubtedly varied between countries, with different emphases on the artistic, technical, or social scientific aspects.

Modern architectural history can be described by viewing the creative work of the architect as a fluctuation between two poles: rationality and irrationality. The first of the two—the rational strategy—had political support, and therefore an advantage, while the intuitive direction was more limited to the work of individual architects. Extensive research specifically targeting housing and the working environment was initiated as part of the rational strategy. The goal was to assess the needs and wants of the anonymous users in a scientific way, to establish a reliable basis for the design work.
