Architecture and building. Metanarratives of architecture
Languages of publication
The paper presents an outlook on the entire creative designing in architecture, defined as arranging space according to human needs. The categories of the Vitruvian Triad and Post-Modern Meaning and Ecology are applied here to analyze architectural works. Individual authors in particular cases and in varied proportions apply the factors resulting from these categories, depending on their creative attitude, ability, fashion, view of the world and so on. Common threads may be discerned in individual creations that form broader narratives in time. Two distinctly different and contrasting timeless meta-narratives emerge, named here Architecture and Building. The two lasting general tendencies define edges of the research area encompassing all actions and works of architecture. Historical and contemporary examples are described as belonging to the both meta-narratives.
