9781940291307: The Function of Style

What is the function of style today? If the 1970s were defined by Postmodernism and the 1980s by Deconstruction, how do we characterize the architecture of the 1990s to the present? Some built forms transmit affects of curvilinearity, others of crystallinity; some transmit multiplicity, others unity; some transmit cellularity, others openness; some transmit dematerialization, others weight. Does this immense diversity reflect a lack of common purpose? In this book, acclaimed architect and theorist Farshid Moussavi argues that this diversity should not be mistaken for an eclecticism that is driven by external forces.
The Function of Style presents the architectural landscape as an intricate web in which individual buildings are the product of ideas which have been appropriated from other buildings designed for the different activities of everyday life, ideas which are varied to produce singular buildings that are related to one another but also different. This network of connections is illustrated on the cover of this book (and in more detail inside).
Moussavi argues that, by embracing everyday life as a raw material, architects can change the conventions of how buildings are assembled, to ground style, and the aesthetic experience of buildings, in the micro-politics of the everyday.
The third volume in Moussavi’s ‘Function’ series, The Function of Style provides an updated approach to style which can be used as an invaluable and highly productive tool by architects today.
Assistant Editors: Marco Ciancarella, Jonathan A. Scelsa, Mary Crettier, Kate Kilalea

About the Author :

Farshid Moussavi is an internationally acclaimed architect and Professor in Practice of Architecture at Harvard University Graduate School of Design. She was previously co-founder of the London-based Foreign Office Architects (FOA). Moussavi has completed her first U.S. commission, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Cleveland (2012), its installation at the 13th Architecture Biennale in Venice (2012), and The Victoria Beckham Flagship Store in London (2014), and she is currently working on a wide range of prestigious international projects including residential complexes in the La Défense district of Paris and in Montpellier, as well as a department store in Paris, France; and an office complex in the City of London, UK.

Review :

"Style has been the term used historically to identify a particular architect's

oeuvre or to indicate some common features of buildings in a place or a

period, says Moussavi, but it contains several dubious and conflicting

assumptions. Among these are that style consists of repetition of formal

elements, that it is the product of an individual personality or intellect, and

that it relates to something larger and less tangible than the buildings that

embody it. She explores the functions of architectural style as residing,

working, residing and working, learning, reading and research, viewing

exhibitions, viewing a performance, watching sports, shopping, and traveling by

airplane. Co-published by the Harvard University Graduate School of Design." --Eithne O'Leyne, Editor, ProtoView

“If you think of style as being about external appearance, as something that can be added and taken away, Moussavi does not. Rather she presents project after project, over 600 pages, in an analytical way – it should be said this is a book for professionals and students. Things like materials, location and authorship are underplayed in favour of organisational ideas, which are where, by implication, style lies”.
--The Guardian

"The Function of Style offers college-level arts holdings a discussion on what comprises the function of style today, in the 1990s to modern times, and considers the various forms that occupy the very modern art world in all their diversity. Does such a wide-ranging collection of art approaches indicate a lack of central focus or purpose? Here architect and theorist Moussavi argues that such diversity in the architectural arts world provides a network of connections that not only embrace modern life, but offer architects the opportunity to change conventional perceptions of art and process alike. In such a milieu, the aesthetics regarding buildings are changed. This third volume in his 'Function' series creates an updated approach to style which architects can use to understand and synthesize ideas of art, architecture, and evolving modern styles, and is recommended for college-level collections strong in discussions of modern art and architectural evolution."

--D. Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review

"...the book is a solid collection of notable buildings and projects. It includes just about every modern building that students of architecture should learn about.” --John Hill, A Daily Dose of Architecture

“Reinforced by its primer style objectivity, Moussavi’s book brings a welcome lucidity and a real sense of critical curiosity to how both architecture and the role of the architect are understood. For Moussavi, ‘the challenge for architects today ... is to assemble a coherent whole with a new cluster of affects that encourages people to react creatively'”.
--Architectural Review

Description du livre Actar publishers, Barcellona, 2015. État : NEW. Barcellona: Actar publishers, 2015 9781940291307 809 640 p. : ill. b/n ; 21 cm. During the 19th and most of the 20th century, discussions of style revolved around pure formalism or pure functionalism. Style, as the way of assembling forms, was trapped in producing consistency and sameness across architectural forms. This publication is the third in a series at Harvard GSD focused at researching a contemporary idea of style in architecture. The previous publication, The Function of Form, investigated the architecture of the latter part of the 20th century which defies the senselessness and anonymity of the early 20th century city. The aim was to establish whether the systems of differentiation identified earlier were exploring their style as formalism or they were based on a new idea of style that would work with form and function simultaneously as a way to use form to subvert function as set out for each type by early 20th century modernism. This book will interrogate further the form - function relationship of those projects. It will focus particularly on the history of drawing techniques of describing different concepts of function. All will be shown through drawings that describe among other criteria the structural function [arrangement of activities or materials], the physical function [such as acoustics, traffic, lighting], and the psychological function or the social function of built forms.
