The Death of Urbanism - Transitions through five stages of grief

 
 
Koolhaas pronounced urbanism dead in 1995. Since then, urban design has struggled to come to terms with this and other losses including environmental stability, affordable housing, design control, and urban amenity. This book explores urban design paradigms transitioning through a misappropriation of Kübler-Ross’ “five stages of grief” – from pro-sprawl ‘denial’, NIMBY ‘anger’, revisionist new urbanist ‘bargaining’, ‘depressed’ starchitects, through to an optimistic manifesto of ‘acceptance’.

A Walk in Frigiliana

In the easternmost district of the Axarquía region of Málaga province there is Frigiliana, a white village of 4,000 people. 300 metres above sea level and benefitting from a subtropical microclimate, looms Frigiliana’s much awarded and praised historic quarter, named “Barribarto”. Here its narrow, steep and winding streets, passageways and alleys combine to form a distinctive framework of small houses, piled one upon another.

SAC Journal 5 - Zero Piranesi / Städelschule Architecture Class

Giovanni Battista Piranesi’s engravings, Campo Marzio dell’antica Roma of 1762, have a peculiar position within the discipline of architecture. With their dissemination, the folio collection of six etchings have till this day nurtured architects’ speculations on the city. Since the Enlightenment, they – and in particular the Campo Marzio plan – have fuelled research, discussions and visions for the future of architecture. These engravings are also some of the most beautiful documents in Western architectural history.
