306090 08: Autonomous Urbanism
Princeton Archit.Press, Sep 9, 2005 - Architecture - 160 pages
Now in its fourth year, this bi-annual journal gains more and more momentum with each new issue. Dedicated to addressing architectural issues from perspectives stretching across the theoretical spectrum, 306090 gives voice to young, up-and-coming architects, designers, and academics looking to push the envelope of architectural theory. Much of architectural theory and criticism evaluates a project's success based on how it engages the surrounding environment and how it operates formally and aesthetically. But there are other forces at play in architecture. 306090 08: Autonomous Urbanism focuses on how legislation, financing, politics, and other indirect influences affect architectural strategies. How do architects and urbanists generate design methods that are conscious of law, financing, politics, and the market? 306090 08 investigates different design strategies focused on harnessing these forces and utilizing them to a purposeful end.
