Architecture as Symbol and Self-Identity

Architecture as Symbol and Self-Identity by Jonathan G. Katz
English | October 9-12, 1979 | ISBN: N/A | PDF | 117 Pages | 8 MB

The task of the architect is to create a physical environment readily identifiable by a society as its own. Building within contemporary societies sets before the professional the challenge of identifying, understanding and creating forms and spaces which are at once new and familiar, which convey a sense of specific identity and which are non-alienating. To do so within the Islamic world today is very difficult indeed.

Architecture as Metaphor: Language, Number, Money (Writing Architecture) by Kojin Karatani
English | Oct 5, 1995 | ISBN: 0262611139 | 246 Pages | PDF | 17 MB

Kojin Karatani, Japan's leading literary critic, is perhaps best known for his imaginative readings of Shakespeare, Soseki, Marx, Wittgenstein, and most recently Kant. His works, of which Origins of Modern Japanese Literature is the only one previously translated into English, are the generic equivalent to what in America is called "theory." Karatani's writings are important not only for the insights they offer on the various topics under discussion, but also as an example of a distinctly non-Western critical intervention.
