DISCOURSE/OBJECTS

Archigram: “Cities are first a number of events and only secondly a collection of buildings.” There is a divide in architectural theory between those who affirm idea, and those who reject it. This latter camp is ultimately less interested in the human events and relations that designs give rise to, and more interested in conducting a taste-driven hermeneutic of building styles. I am more sympathetic to the Archigram camp. The object – the commodity – is just what you sell; what is important is the discourse around it.
