9780470666166: 2: The Autopoiesis of Architecture, Volume II: A New Agenda for Architecture

This is the second part of a major theoretical work by Patrik Schumacher, which outlines how the discipline of architecture should be understood as its own distinct system of communication. Autopoeisis comes from the Greek and means literally self-production; it was first adopted in biology in the 1970s to describe the essential characteristics of life as a circular self-organizing system and has since been transposed into a theory of social systems. This new approach offers architecture an arsenal of general comparative concepts. It allows architecture to be understood as a distinct discipline, which can be analyzed in elaborate detail while at the same time offering insightful comparisons with other subject areas, such as art, science and political discourse. On the basis of such comparisons the book insists on the necessity of disciplinary autonomy and argues for a sharp demarcation of design from both art and engineering. Schumacher accordingly argues controversially that design as a discipline has its own sui generis intelligence – with its own internal logic, reach and limitations.

Whereas the first volume provides the theoretical groundwork for Schumacher’s ideas – focusing on architecture as an autopoeitic system, with its own theory, history, medium and its unique societal function – the second volume addresses the specific, contemporary challenges and tasks that architecture faces. It formulates these tasks, looking specifically at how architecture is seeking to organize and articulate the complexity of post-fordist network society. The volume explicitly addresses how current architecture can upgrade its design methodology in the face of an increasingly demanding task environment, characterized by both complexity and novelty. Architecture’s specific role within contemporary society is explained and its relationship to politics is clarified. Finally, the new, global style of Parametricism is introduced and theoretically grounded.

From the Back Cover :

It is well-known that the challenges of military combat can extend far beyond the battlefield. Beating Combat Stress is a one-stop handbook of 101 field-tested techniques and strategies designed to help service personnel and veterans deal with the psychological effects of combat and live life to the full.

The book equips readers with helpful tools, coping mechanisms and techniques organized into six sections: Triggers; Flashbacks; Unwelcome Thoughts; Dealing with the Lows; Meaning and Purpose in Life; and Disturbed Sleep. The overall goal is to help individuals dealing with the widest range of combat stress issues to regain maximum operational fitness and health as soon as possible. Avoiding psychological jargon, the author does not spend time exploring complex theories of why combat stress occurs. Instead he focuses on ‘what works’, providing the most effective advice for those who experience combat stress, their loved ones and those who help them professionally.

By promoting early intervention and a solution-focused approach, Beating Combat Stress equips active and returning troops, combat veterans and the professionals who help them with the means to defeat the enemy within, and to achieve a renewed sense of direction and purpose in life.
