  • Pier Vittorio AURELI.

    london UNITED KINGDOM

    Let us hope that from time to time the individual will give a little humanity to the masses, who one day will repay him with compound interest. — Walter BENJAMIN, “Experience and Poverty,” 1933.

    Abstraction addresses the process of removal in order to reach the essential datum of things. In a design world increasingly dominated by organic and redundant forms, abstraction is likely to be one of the most unpopular concepts in the field of architectural theory.

    lecture: Pier Vittorio AURELI, “A Brief History of Abstraction in Architecture: Design and the Administration of Life.”

  • Pier Vittorio AURELI, The Possibility of an Absolute Architecture.
    2011

    In The Possibility of an Absolute Architecture, Pier Vittorio Aureli proposes that a sharpened formal consciousness in architecture is a precondition for political, cultural, and social engagement with the city. Aureli uses the term absolute not in the conventional sense of “pure,” but to denote something that is resolutely itself after being separated from its other. In the pursuit of the possibility of an absolute architecture, the other is the space of the city, its extensive organization, and its government. Politics is agonism through separation and confrontation; the very condition of architectural form is to separate and be separated. . . .

    The lecture, coinciding with the Exhibition currently in the AA Gallery, will present projects which illustrate Dogma’s main concerns. Since 2002 Dogma has focused almost exclusively on urban projects. If the modern city was shaped by streets and roads, our project seeks a new form of urbanism made of walls. If one were to summarise life in a city and life in a building in one gesture, it would have to be that of passing through walls. Every moment of our existence is a continuous movement through space defined by walls.

    Pier Vittorio Aureli is an architect and educator. He is the co-founder of Dogma, an architectural studio that focuses on the project of the city. He teaches at the AA and Yale SOA and is the author of The Project of Autonomy and The Possibility of an Absolute Architecture. Aureli’s lecture will trace the development of the architectural project, focusing on the relationship between social and political conflicts and the urge of architecture to tame these conflicts and reform the city. His lecture attempts to situate architecture beyond regressive or progressive terms, as material evidence that the evolution of design has been always the outcome of struggle.

    In the 1920s, the urban theory of Ludwig Hilberseimer (1885–1967) redefined architecture’s relationship to the city. His proposal for a high-rise city, where leisure, labor and circulation would be vertically integrated, both frightened his contemporaries and offered a trenchant critique of the dynamics of the capitalist metropolis. Hilberseimer’s Groszstadtarchitektur is presented here for the first time in English translation. . . .
