Más allá de la Firmitas: Ámbitos de organización dinámica en el proyecto arquitectónico

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract / Description of output

Whereas Vitruvius' Firmitas –understood as a focus on organization that is fundamentally staticis almost universally considered to be a key strategy of architectural design, this paper attempts to outline an alternative conceptual framework in which the passing of time constitutes an additional parameter of spatial configuration. This approach is based on the notions of field, event and alloy, and points towards a range of design outcomes characterized by being in a permanent state of transformation. As a case study of this understanding of the design process, this paper puts forward an analysis of the Kanagawa Institute of Technology Workshop designed by Junya Ishigami.
