Architecture in Effect vol #1(2) Rethinking the Social in Architecture: Making Effects - Editors’ Introduction
Book chapter, 2019
The socially oriented perspective of Volume #1, Rethinking the Social, is complemented by discussions of architectural and transdisciplinary theories and methodologies in Volume #2, After Effects. Together these twin volumes reflect on topics such as the utopian idea of a welfare state, the role of intersubjective and non-human points of view, and the impact of historical and current images on the making of realities – and how such themes are intertwined with the development of architecture. The collected essays draw on historical and contemporary architectural situations, as seen from socially oriented perspectives and through the use of innovative methodologies and theories. A special feature included in the collection is a heteroglossary, a lexicon that defines productive concepts for architectural research that the contributing authors activate across the two volumes. Professor Dana Cuff, UCLA, USA, has provided a perceptive foreword for the double book project. The task of these books is to present a wide range of research topics that combine historical, material, and critical research approaches that respond to our current crises and challenges. Ultimately, this enables new modes of knowledge production within architecture to be advanced in its relation to societal transformation.
