Overview

As the number and distinctiveness of design directions in contemporary architecture expands, an outcome has emerged of a contradictory nature. While many of these directions hold great intrigue, a troubling aspect arises in that in their realization an “incompleteness” is often exhibited, one expressing a less developed architectural richness often expressed in an under-utilized nature of the architectural language itself.

‘Internal’ addresses this issue with a focus on topics that underly the creation of architectural languages. Concentrating on strategies and concepts that inform the creation of cohering architectural languages versus “external” factors affecting design, such as those necessary to accommodate site or program, ‘Internal’ focuses on design considerations incorporating the authority grounded in “internal” language-based architectural issues. Identifying underlying themes and strategies necessary to create coherent and informed architectural languages constitutes the effort underlying this book.
