A k architekture jeste vychazi knizka:
With their elegant looped, landscaped and smoothed structures, the buildings of contemporary architectural practices such as Zaha Hadid, Rem Koolhaas, SANAA and Alejandro Zaera-Polo promote free circulation between the private and the public, work and pleasure, education and business.
Conceived according to the same models of networking, fluid interaction and organisational complexity that are found in management theory, this is an architecture that announces itself as avant-garde and progressive, highly-attuned to the contemporary imperatives of connectivity, flexibility, and mobility. However, as this book argues, the architecture of the 'new spatiality has in fact allied itself alarmingly with a neoliberal agenda with important implications for our understanding of architectural design and its relationship to politics, control and the exercise of power.
Architecture and Neoliberalism presents an uncompromising critical intervention within architectural discourse, showing how architecture is at risk of fashioning itself as little more than an instrument of neoliberalism. Exploring what this means for architects, architecture, and the inhabitants and users of buildings, we see how 'elegance serves to obscure conditions of labour, organic formations work to naturalise financial imperatives, while figures of porosity, fluidity and transparency advertise the experience of space as open and liberating.
Evidence is drawn from detailed critiques of contemporary projects (including Zaha Hadid s BMW Central Building, OMA s CCTV headquarters in Beijing, and SOM s Roosevelt Island Tech Campus ) and from examining how key theories are deployed Deleuze and Guattari, Foucault, and Latour, models of emergence, self-organization and autopoiesis. The questions this book asks of the discipline of its relationships to power and control, and of the real significance of its aesthetic strategies demand serious reflection.
