Description

Dwelling and Architecture: From Heidegger to Koolhaas explores the influence of Martin Heideggers concept of dwelling (Wohnen) in disputing major imperatives of modern architecture. It is a book on both the history of architecture and the history of ideas. Focused on the substantial differences of the philosophers first-person approach to Le Corbusiers positivism, it goes on to draw on the views of the Other Modern. Of Heideggers ideas, it pinpoints those that appealed to architects who questioned the post-war modern architectures record, and demonstrates the scope of appropriation of his theory on dwelling; an appropriation, nevertheless, subject to limitationsfor better or worse. Last but not least, it traces Heideggers thoughts into the current debate on architecture generated by modern-day architects and thinkers such as Aaron Betsky and Rem Koolhaas.
