Event Title

Archistructures – back to origins

Session

Architecture and Spatial Planning

Description

Ultimately, we are witnessing tendencies and movements aiming to detach architecture from its Vitruvian [Vitruvius] base, mainly through violation of building’s anatomy, artistic formation but above all through aberration of the structure as an essential part of any building. In doing so, we are witnessing the reversal of the Vitruvian tetrahedron – Firmitas, Utilitas, Venustas, consequently, his vertex – Architecture descends below his base, thereof strongly depreciating it. Structural skeleton is an essential part of each architecture, and if designed objectively, doesn’t affect architectural function, rational respectively to the resources, original with its topology, cannot result in breach to the principal aim of each architecture: aesthetical values. It becomes integral part of the architecture, i.e., the architecture itself. It is almost certain, that each deviation from the above-mentioned principles, mainly through speculative artistic formations, not to mention the challenge of fundamental natural laws, shall bring a weak product in the most optimist of scenarios
