How do architects, when facing an unfamiliar situation, proceed and go about their work? One view would argue that they apply some universal principle or model, that helps them handle the many contingencies of a situation. But architects themselves often claim, on the contrary, that their work grows out of the situation genuinely. Rarely do they make claims for universal validity of their achievements. The situational character of their work therefore poses the question of how architects get familiarized with a situation. This study shows that the architect’s grasp of the situation may fruitfully be viewed as memory, retrieved inventively through sketching and other imaginative practices, forming an art of recollection.
