SHADOW OF HISTORY



The symphonic narrative of rise and fall of any ideological thought or an institution is embedded in its nature of symbolic narrative that has generated since its formative circumstances. The thought or an idea that hinges on the clean breath of cultural studies and able to set the trajectory beyond the range of secular pattern of thought is often enduring and a disquieting thought. However any ideal or an institution at any given time is not a divine mandate that undermines the intellectual climate and give way to rise of theo-political burden.

It’s very often seen that what is politically correct is not necessarily ideologically or academically correct as such position is often contaminated with thick coating of anti-historical consciousness  Such position allows one to erase the contextual distinction and create a strange political program to halt the intellectual dynamo. The shades of ideology & multi-disciplinary is not necessarily means multi-valent in nature perhaps it’s the shifty byzantine for seditious propaganda as extinguisher to foreshadow the cleavage of deterministic objective program.

The ideas and ideology transform itself into a sapless trunk by virtue of such anti-moral ascendancy & conflicting economic/network necessities. The ideals need to be away from self absorbed condition and mend the way as social & cultural cement. It often begins to lose its shades of imaginative hypothesis and bold simplicity & as result fall of its critical space and dialogue.  

Perhaps it the time that the system needs to be oiled with dialectical mode bestowed with autonomous scholastic setting.

ARCHITECTURE OF THE ENMESHED CULTURE

The recent trends of architecture demonstrates the pugnacious departure from disciplined modernism. The traditional notion of creativity is slowly replaced by innovation in technological inputs and tools that generate the forms rather than tools that aids the process of generating one. The sinuous forms, non-structured or non euclidean geometry are encapsulating minds and thoughts into unidirectional understanding of architecture as form making process. Having said that the argument of Aesthetic or delight is not only re-created but formally put in to the realm of hedonism. The architecture has never been so polemic at any stage of its evolution. The only reliable source of justification of  the emergence of such architecture is the way cultural ingredient that are induced universally, uniformly and unequivocally across the globe through in-numerous mediums amounting into forced reality.

The sterile or dogmatic ideas are slowly giving away to kinetic notion of architecture, the purity …

URBANISM ECOLOGY AND PLACE: Reading "City Riffs"

The recent publication of book titled " City Riffs" by Richard Plunz ( Columbia University, GSAPP) is based on urbanism discourse (dialogue) in relation to place and ecology. The preface by Kenneth Frampton argues the production of urban knowledge in neo-liberal economy results in aporetic question on limits and scope in the field of urban study. He brings about three important and critical discourses by Christopher Alexander on low rise, high density model, E.J Mishan work on "The Cost of Economic Growth" and Plunz work on "CIty Riffs" demonstrating the linear process of indictment of urban transformation towards maldistribution of resources.
The book brings the analogy of place and ecology, which needs in-depth understanding as both shares concept of place and space. His argument on place based centrality to urban discourse which perhaps has not been dissected theoretically enough as compare to environmental science. He argues further that how biological…
