After Architectural Phenomenology

Show Summary Details


This chapter presents some final thoughts concerning architectural phenomenology. It argues that architectural phenomenology produced new architectural standards of intellectual, aesthetic, and historiographical competency. Through its objective and discursive mechanisms, it organized the attention of architects toward what mattered (aesthetic experience, history, and theory) and structured the functional relationships between these matters. Today, architectural phenomenology undergirds the sensualist neomodernist fantasy of an essential experiential origin to architecture.

Keywords: architectural intellectuality; architectural phenomenology; architecture
