Analiza Compozitionala Diagramatica – Lansare

Cartea este in fine gata.
Lansarea va fi organizata cu generoasa gazduire a OAR Filiala Bucuresti la sediul OAR de la parterul Facultatii de Arhitectura Ion Mincu din str. Academiei, miercuri 12.10.2011 la ora 17.30.

Multumesc anticipat presedintelui filialei, prof.dr.arh.Mircea Ochinciuc.

Sunt asteptati colegi arhitecti si studenti.

Sper ca aceasta lansare sa constituie o buna oportunitate pentru o discutie libera privitor la sensul pe care trebuie sa-l capete invatamantului de arhitectura din tara noastra si importanta pe care o (mai) pot avea clasicele reguli de compozitie intr-o lume a arhitecturii de bolovani, cochilii si limaxi pe care o vedem crescand sub ochii nostri.

Totul se va incepe si se va termina cu un pahar de sampanie.

Va asteptam cu drag

IN THE CAUSE OF ARCHITECTURE

„How significant is Frank Lloyd Wright today ? How important is the „cause” for which he crusaded? How should we evaluate the Wright legacy now?” se intreba in 1975 Frederick Gutheim, editorul volumului In the cause of Architecture”, care cuprinde textele publicate de Frank Lloyd Wright in Architectural Record, volum editat cu ocazia unui simpozion dedicat marelui arhitect american.

CLASSICAL ARCHITECTURE


There are numbers of architects who can reproduce the beauties of antiquity … but where is the one who … can produce a work answering its purpose, and suitable to place and period, in the same manner and with the same freedom as did the architects of old when they produced the works which are still the marvel of the world ?
These architects were familiar with the alphabet and grammar of Architecture. Ours of today, ignorant of the first principles …, glue them together and imagine they have made a whole. In fact, our buildings are but mere odds and ends brought together … generally without care. At the best, this is not architecture; at the worst, it is charlatanism.

Edward Welby Pugin (1834-1875): Letter in The Times, 19 Decembrie 1871


reprodus dupa Classical Architecture / James Stevens Curl, Batsford 1992

FRANK GEHRY

  • And I realized, when I’d come in to the meetings with these corrugated metal and chain link stuff, and people would just look at me like I’d just landed from Mars. But I couldn’t do anything else. That was my response to the people and the time.

    Architecture should speak of its time and place, but yearn for timelessness.

    INFORMAL Cecil Balmond

  • Arhitectura devine din ce in ce mai legata de tehnologie, iar conceptul arhitectural integreaza din ce in ce mai mult geometriile ne-euclidiene.
    Arhitectul depinde din ce in ce mai mult de computer, iar inginerul structurist este din ce in de mai apropiat de arhitect.
    Multe din realizarile arhitecturii contemporane nu ar fi fost posibil de realizat fara o echipa pluridisciplinara in care inginerul structurist devine nu numai partener ci ia parte la actul creator al arhitecturii.

  • Cecil Balmond este una dintre figurile cele mai importante ale ingineriei ultimilor ani, fiind legat de multe din proiectele cele mai indraznete.
    Parcurgerea cartii sale publicate in 2002 la editura Prestel ofera o imagine despre ce a devenit demersul ingineresc iar al sau MANIFESTO este edificator in acest sens.

  • Tadao Ando

    You can’t really say what is beautiful about a place, but the image of the place will remain vividly with you.

    You cannot simply put something new into a place. You have to absorb what you see around you, what exists on the land, and then use that knowledge along with contemporary thinking to interpret what you see.

    In Japan, since the temple is made of wood, the divine spirit inside the building is eternal, so the enclosure doesn’t have to be.

    I believe that the way people live can be directed a little by architecture.

    I don’t look so closely at women’s fashion, but from the 20th century on, people have had the freedom to express themselves and their individualities, and fashion is one of the most fundamental ways in which they do this, men and women are equally able to express themselves.

    I would like my architecture to inspire people to use their own resources, to move into the future.

    If you give people nothingness, they can ponder what can be achieved from that nothingness.

    In the West there has always been the attempt to try make the religious building, whether it’s a Medieval or Renaissance church, an eternal object for the celebration of God. The material chosen, such as stone, brick, or concrete, is meant to eternally preserve what is inside.

    Japanese traditional architecture is created based on these conditions. This is the reason you have a very high degree of connection between the outside and inside in architecture.

    My hand is the extension of the thinking process – the creative process.

    People tend not to use this word beauty because it’s not intellectual – but there has to be an overlap between beauty and intellect.

    The computer offers another kind of creativity. You cannot ignore the creativity that computer technology can bring. But you need to be able to move between those two different worlds.

    The level of detail and craft is something that’s inscribed within the original design concept. And so when I begin to draw, I know what kind of detailing I want the building to have.

    The speed of change makes you wonder what will become of architecture.

    There is a role and function for beauty in our time.

    When I design buildings, I think of the overall composition, much as the parts of a body would fit together. On top of that, I think about how people will approach the building and experience that space.

    When I draw something, the brain and the hands work together.

    When you look at Japanese traditional architecture, you have to look at Japanese culture and its relationship with nature. You can actually live in a harmonious, close contact with nature – this very unique to Japan.

    Arhitectura ca Spatiu

    O satisfacatoare istorie a arhitecturii nu a fost inca scrisa, deoarece nu suntem inca obisnuiti sa gandim arhitectura in termeni de spatiu, si pentru ca istoricii de arhitectura au esuat in a gasi si aplica o metoda de studiu al cladirilor din punctul de vedere al spatiului.
    Oricine s-a aplecat macar ocazional asupra acestui subiect stie ca proprietatea specifica a arhitecturii – atributul care o diferentiaza de toate celelalte forme de arta – consista in lucrul cu vocabularul tridimensional, care il include si pe om. Pictura functioneaza in doua dimensiuni, chiar daca poate sugera trei sau chiar patru. Sculptura lucreaza in trei dimesiuni, dar omul ramane in afara, privind-o din exterior. Arhitectura, totusi, este ca o mare sculptura goala pe dinauntru in care omul intra si si-o apropriaza miscandu-se in interiorul ei.
