9780485004151: Architectural Philosophy

Architectural Philosophy is the first book to outline a philosophical account of architecture and to establish the singularity of architectural practice and theory. This dazzling sequence of essays opens out the subject of architecture, touching on issues as wide ranging as the problem of memory and the dystopias of science fiction. Arguing for the indissolubility of form and function, Architectural Philosophy explores both the definition of the site and the possibility of alterity. The analysis of the nature of the present and the complex sructure of repetition allows for the possibility of judgement, a judgement that arises from a reworked politics of architecture.

Review:

"Architecture and Philosophy share an intricate challenge, both setting propositions, theorems, hypotheses or concepts, then trying to demonstrate their validity. So it is very exciting when a talented philosopher uses the tools of his trade to address architectrue, particularly when that philosopher is Andrew Benjamin, who knows current architectural debates and has often contributed brilliantly to them. Here time, architectural theory, lines, diagrams, and the body in space are explroed. An excellent book."—Bernard Tschumi
