Social vs. Monumental: Contrasting Views of the Architectural Profession
KTH, School of Architecture and the Built Environment (ABE), Architecture, History and Theory of Architecture.
2018 (English)In: After Effects: Theories and Methodologies in Architectural Research / [ed] Hélène Frichot with Gunnar Sandin and Bettina Schwalm, New York, Barcelona: Actar Publishers , 2018, p. 118-127Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

In this essay, influential and contrasting views of the architectural profession are analyzed in light of conscious research efforts made in response to the crisis of architecture that took place in the 1960s and 1970s. Texts by Dana Cuff, Spiro Kostof, Thomas Kuhn, Magali Sarfatti Larson, and others connected with the University of California, Berkeley, are treated as primary material for a critical historiography. The main issue is the observed conflict between a monumental approach to architecture on the one hand, and a social or collaborative approach to the work of architects on the other.
