Wall-Facade as Surface : towards the construct of mediative facades

Descripción: 150 p.
Tema(s):
Resumen: This article examines the role of building envelopes as a primary means of defining architecture in terms of not only the functional aspects but also its aesthetic implications. The author argues for the role of facades and walls as mediative by introducing the notion of surface. The article includes key models of building envelopes and each respective position in today's architectural environment. Next he proposes a conception of surface as the primary means of constructing the building's relationship to a context and as a medium through which an environment is perceived. In addition, the article discusses philosophical positions that frame envelope-surface as a form of mimesis. Here the author argues that mimesis defines our relationship to our environment and contributes critically to the building's spatial characters. In closing, the author cites some of the featured projects in reference to the discussions.
En: C3 No. 324 (ago. 2011) ; p. 50-199
