Time in Modernist Architecture: An Approach

  • Michael Jasper Universidade Lusófona de Humanidades e Tecnologias


Two propositions underpin this paper. The first is thematic: there is a largelyunexamined temporality specific to modernist architecture, one independent ofmovement. A close reading of certain projects from the perspective of time mayreveal the devices and formal moves deployed to achieve the characteristic effects ofthat temporality. The second proposition is methodological: that the analysis ofcertain works of architecture as manifestations of design-led research revealdiscipline-specific problems. These research problems are rendered as form relations,composition strategies, and spatial effects. Variations as to how such problems areresponded to in turn constitute contributions to architectural knowledge.Keywords: architecture, design-led research, space, time
