What if we take advantage of this two-dimensional spatiality more fully and view it as planar linearity, linearity so familiar from reading and navigating inside books? What if our collection of books is organised in a way texts are organised in books?

We can take several organizational elements of the book and turn them into architectural features of our library, namely: bibliography, anthology, and one from ancient history — scroll.

This page is one such an architectural library. It gathers some of the writings on history, theory and criticism that have shaped the discourse of architecture in the 20th and 21st centuries. It is designed for both the novice in the field and the more experienced researcher.

The table of contents provides a general structure. Another way of navigation is to search for a specific name, keyword or publication and explore neighboring elements.

The page is divided into five main sections. The first three contain a selection of books, catalogues and magazine issues. The first is dedicated to canonical books, loosely grouped into themes.

The main programme of the school was comprised of administration, classrooms and dining hall, including a courtyard which no longer exists. The classrooms are open towards the north and all elements facing south and east are protected by either vertical or horizontal sun-breaks.

The existing building was built in the s and is of the tudoresque style. This is the main argument for those who are skeptical of its authenticity and truthfulness. What is clear, though, is that two-level gable roof structures are very common in the historic city center. And the concrete shell is more than an obvious reference to it. By giving just enough elements to relate, it creates a contrast, without appearing out of place.

The gable roof is certainly something that most humans have come across with sometime in their life. In one form or another, it has left its presence in each of the five continents and has affected most cultures.

Even today, it is widely used. Its use can be derived by the practicality of its shape, which diverts water, snow and hail away from it. It also has a very strong symbolic meaning: This is seen in many cultures, especially eastern ones. This archaic gesture is intrigues a very strong collective memory, a conscience maybe, which most people, especially in England, are familiar with. It leaves no doubt that it is both formal and contextual.

A building that even a child can relate to think of a childish drawing of a building , doubtlessly gives a sense of security, warmth and homeliness. Now, the design strategies aimed to small-scale context. The large model of the Canterbury Cathedral takes its place in the small addition to the concrete shell. This position is ideal for it, as the large glass planes on either side of it perpendicular to St.

But then I realized that this approach would be very wrong. This would mean that the non-architect who users this building is intended for would have to experience an awkward and cheap building.

A complex in which people would naturally and seamlessly flow through during their exploration of it.

A complex in which a continuum of beautifully framed vistas alternating with fine interiors creates a spectacular experience. A building where a staircase is the only thing connecting bright and dim light, in a very open generous space or in a more cozy one, respectively. In order to better understand this scheme, it is important to compare it to modernist structures.

For this comparison, we shall look to the other side of the Atlantic, more accurately, to Exeter, New Hampshire. There, we will find an excellent sample of modernist architecture, the Philips Exeter Academy Library, by Louis Kahn, finished in figure Louis Kahn is one of the most important modernist architects.

One of the most characterizing elements of his work is his response to context through his schemes. For his design for the Philips Exeter Academy Library, Kahn managed to create both contrast and direct association. Louis Kahn used Exeter brick for the exterior shell of the Library, a material most other campus buildings were made of as well. This was a direct association to the immediate context. We can then spot the two main attitudes in dealing with context in the choice of materials as well: Secondly, the massing of the two buildings was a conscious choice in accordance with context.

The library is situated in a suburban campus, with plenty open, green space. Of course, in both designs, the outmost care was given to creating a space as pleasant as possible for the people who will be using it. For example, timber served this purpose in both buildings, by achieving the creation of a warm and inviting environment.

Apart from that, though, this comparison will show many differences, the biggest of which possibly being flexibility.

The exhibition spaces, especially the ones housed in the bridge, can be easily changed, using temporary partition, the lighting conditions can be adjusted to will, using both natural and artificial lighting.

The seminar room can easily be opened to the courtyard, in order to create a larger space for when the weather allows.

A dramatic atmosphere is achieved by directing the user through a consecution of alternating vistas both inside the complex itself and towards the surroundings. This can be seen in the narrow corridor between the shell and the existing building in which the reproduction of an ancient boat found by the trust is hung figure 12 that serves as a path towards the heart of the complex, as well as to the entrance to the shell.


Internally, maybe the most theatrical part of the complex is the staircase inside the shell, leading visitors inside the bridge figure We can then spot the two main attitudes in dealing with context in the choice of materials as well: Thames and Hudson.

Built on an exterior arrangement in the form of an octagonal star, the Mosque became a landmark on the city skyline due to its candle-shaped minaret.

But then I realized that this approach would be very wrong. Believing that architecture could be studied like any cultural and was constantly bombarded with information and images all phenomenon, as a semiotic system governed by relationships around.
