Architectural thought: history and theory entangled


This paper revisits a recent essay by Stanford Anderson, where he analyses Peter Eisenman’s take on Corbusier’s Maison Dom-ino. The two takes on that perspective diagram are read in the light of Gadamer’s notion of effective-historical consciousness (in Truth and Method), and Deleuze’s notion of the different/cation of the Idea (in Difference and Repetition). The argument is made in the context of architectural studies and practice that an unconventional framing of through would allow historical consciousness to be theory; and theory to be historical. This reframing in turn is shown, via an discussion of Maison Dom-ino, to have something constructive to say about the nature of architecture and architectural practice.
