One Theory of Broken Architecture
Conference object (Published version)

Broken architecture is fulfilling the aesthetical gap made by its intention to envelope life and to be enveloped by the same. The theory of certain state can reach boundaries far beyond physical appearance touching fields of narratives, immaterial and surreal. It’s altered (problematic, questionable) reflection to the rest of the world is the fountainhead of its designing values. Despite being contradict to its own reality, architecture of such characteristics cannot exist without a clear conceptual constellation of the future of that world. Therefore, this theoretical approach casts light on the practice which is kept alive only by the continuity of the memories of its pre-formed aesthetical conditions. By recalling the mannerist liberation from the rational plan, we can still operate within ideas of Paladio’s stylistic layering of the architectural plasticity (Villa Foscari) going further into Tschumi’s notion of the state of deconstruction (Villa Savoya) up to Bo Bardi’s artificia...l naturalness (Casa de Vidro). Today we are facing a new necessity: to live within the broken as a new form of architectural resistance.
