Oase 103 Critical Regionalism Revisited Kenneth Frampton Special

Regular price $48.00

The English architect, historian, critic, and educator Kenneth Frampton received the Golden Lion for

Lifetime Achievement at the latest Venice Biennale 2018. There is no architecture student that is not

familiar with his book 'Modern Architecture: A Critical History' (1980). This issue of OASE examines

the canonical role of Kenneth Frampton’s concept of ‘Critical Regionalism’, reaching beyond its

 

traditional interpretation. It gathers contributions that propose a new genealogy of the text, critical re-

readings and explorations by practicing architects and architecture theorists that evaluate the

 

interest of Frampton’s ideas for contemporary architecture.
