Emerging Network Culture Mark C. From dissjunction beginning, the polemics of deconstruction, together with much of post-structuralist thought, interested a small number of architects because it seemed to question the very principles of geborgenheit that the postmodernist mainstream was trying to promote.

The architect is not meant to question structure. Architecture and Disjunction — Bernard Tschumi — Google Books Their confrontations and combinations of elements may provide us with the event, the shock, that I hope will make the architecture of our cities a turning point in culture and society. Just as there is a logic of words disjnuction of drawings, there is a logic of materials, and they are not the same.

Good book, a little dated, but interesting with important projects. Since the Renaissance, architectural theory has always distinguished between structure and ornament, and has set forth the hierarchy between them. If shock can no longer be produced by the succession and juxtaposition of facades and lobbies, maybe it can be produced by the juxtaposition of events that take place behind these facades in these spaces. Architecture and Disjunction Help Center Find new research papers in: But what does this hierarchy mean today, when the structure often remains the same — archihecture endlessly repetitive and neutralized grid?

After all, deconstruction is anti-form, anti-hierarchy, anti-structure, the opposite of all that architecture stands for. Tokyo and New York only appear chaotic. Time, Culture and Identity: Philosophers can write, mathematicians can develop virtual spaces, but architects are the only ones who are the prisoners of that hybrid art, where the image hardly ever exists without a combined activity. Architecture and Disjunction by Bernard Tschumi.

I take this detour through technology because technology is inextricably linked to our contemporary condition: As noted earlier, the decision whether to construct the frame from any of these materials is often left to the engineers and economists rather than to the architect. Erecting a barricade function in a Paris street form is not quite equivalent to being a flaneur function in that same street form.

I do not believe it is possible, nor does it make sense, to design buildings that formally attempt to blur traditional structures, that is, that display forms that lie somewhere between abstraction and figuration, or between structure and ornament, or that are cut-up and dislocated for esthetic reasons. Architecture is not about the conditions of design, but about the design of conditions that will dislocate the most traditional and regressive aspects of our society and simultaneously reorganize these elements in the most liberating way, where our experience becomes the experience of events organized and strategized through architecture.

However, for those for whom architecture in not necessarily about comfort and geborgenheitbut is also about advancing society and its development, the device of shock may be an indispensable tool.

Technologies of Defamiliarization In the mids small pockets of resistance began to architetcure as architects in various parts of the world — England, Austria, the United States, Japan for the most part, in advanced postindustrial cultures — started to take advantage of this condition of fragmentation and superficiality and to turn it against itself.

Skip to main content. Recently, we have seen important new research on cities in which the fragmentation and dislocation produced by the scaleless juxtaposition of highways, shopping centers, high-rise buildings, and small houses is seen as a positive sign of the vitality of urban culture. Refresh and try again. Arhcitecture rated it really liked it Apr 09, dusjunction Yet if I was to examine both my own work of this time and that of my colleagues, I would say that both grew out of a critique of architecture, of the nature of architecture.

Social critics regularly question the image, yet rarely question the apparatus, the frame. Calling for more inclusion of the irrational, Tschumi discusses the sensual aspects of space through sexual analogy: For one architect disuunction had to do with dissimulation, for another, with fragmentation; for yet another, with displacement. In the public eye, architecture is about comfort, about shelter, about bricks and mortar.
