Phenomenology, architecture and the writing of architectural history

Review of:

Alberto Pérez-Gómez, Timely Meditations, Selected Essays on Architecture, 2 vols, Montreal: Right Angle International, 2016, and Alberto Pérez-Gómez, Attunement, architectural meaning after the crisis of modern science, Cambridge, Mass.: The MIT Press, 2016.

Branko Mitrović (Norwegian University of Science and Technology) 19/BM1

Abstract: Alberto Pérez-Gómez’s books Attunement and Timely Meditations present a comprehensive summary of his version of the phenomenological perspective on architectural theory as well as his critique of the impact of the science- and rationality-based worldview on architecture. In this review I analyse the positions that he presents in these books.

Keywords: Alberto Pérez-Gómez, Christian Norberg-Schulz, phenomenology, architecture, architectural history, historiography
