ARCHITECTURE AS SCIENCE AND PLACE

 

1960-1990: Image

In the 1960s, architecture begins to look for scientific methods to improve. It can be considered

that architecture as a form of art is replaced with architecture as a branch of science. In the early

1960s, the concept of space-time is replaced by existential space under the influence of the

philosophy of Martin Heidegger, while the 1970s witnesses a return back to the concept of mass.

Terms like environment, place, location, and site begin to be used more than space itself.

Architectural theoreticians study and integrate diverse philosophical approaches like

structuralism, phenomenology, and semiology; they analyze design methods, typologies,

syntaxes, and relationships between environment and user behaviors.
