Krvia has positioned itself to set locus of inquiry within the realm of social and cultural studies that shapes the architecture, which in turns allow us to expand the architectural value system. The theme of Object of Architecture and Architecture of Object is an ongoing attempt to theorize the decoding and coding system that operates within the phenomenon space. Historically it seems that fixing coordinates of values system always stagnates the system of inquiry and as result the ideological ground tend to become sap less trunk. I:e architecture becomes subservient to its determinacy.
To take the argument further it becomes mandatory to set new horizon for the wider expansion of inquiry by immediate introspection i:e questioning self. Perhaps in questioning self it may enable us to delayer or may questions the parameter that we believed are truth that shapes architecture. It is an attempt to read architecture in its syntax as well as in its reference by qualifying architecture as an object. It’s a classical debate of writing (transformation) & reading (implicit & explicit).
Its important to investigate what all that constitute an “OBJECT”. What construct an “OBJECT”. If Architecture or an object is a language construct than syntax and semantics are thesis and anti thesis in Hegelian theory. The word anti thesis is a process of translation & quotation that destined towards contamination. The translation is possible only to something original hence translation or transformation is a contamination to original.
Based on Hegel theory the constitution of an Object is in self-consciousness & its an agreement of object with our conception of it. The process of decoded self, conceptualization, abstraction, refrentialization to coded existence. Hence an Object is a pre-supposition of conceptual conformity or object is thought determined by the process of thought.
The truth of an aesthetic judgment is an implicit reference to a subject that makes the judgment. Hence it becomes clear that “Object is concrete whose abstraction/contamination is determined by the philosophy of correct reference”
Lastly Hegel argument on indeterminacy of an object. It can easily be argued within the discourse of architecture that “Indeterminacy of an object aligned with the indeterminacy of content where architecture is struggling to find its existence”
The OAAO is destined to problematize the determinacy of presence of object /content, writing/reading, decoding/coding. Hence question that arises of conflict are as follows:
-          Can object be a de-coded entity?
-          Can Architecture be a literal space?
-          Can Architecture dwell on its own existence or metaphysics of space?

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…
