Title Rappel au désordre : architectural aesthetics between the performative and the sublime
Author(s) Hellström, Maria
Date 2006
English abstract
An increasingly aestheticized society has inevitably changed architecture’s role and function. By some enthusiastically embraced as a longed-for recognition of architecture’s scenographic, artistic or entertaining potentials, this change has also given rise to a scepti- cism as to the role of slippery aesthetics and a subsequent recall of a more decent, tectonic “form-power”. But do architects necessarily have to be either uncritically engulfed by aesthetics or the obstinate defenders of a decent, but boring, alternative? A constructive answer to this question, however, requires a critique of aesthetics as formal or normative order, in favor of a performative, view of aesthetics as a means to do justice to a ‘disorderly’ world.
