Criteria and Instruments of Criticism: The Quest for an Architectural Specificity (EN)
The architectural design process aims to create new orders and at the same time is, itself, structured by its practical, technical, social, and legal frameworks. The lecture series in the 2022/2023 summer and winter semester traces this double relation. Each design imagines the future and represents an attempt to create a new spatial – and thus always social – order. This projective access to the unknown and unthought places planning conventions, construction standards, legal requirements and established architectural, urbanistic and social ideas in relation to each other rethinks them, and makes them dynamic. The lecture series asks how design structures the interaction of these different and heterogeneous factors and what roles the conditions, norms, and tools of design play.
