Ornament, Paperback Book

Description

Over the last decade or so, the widespread adoption of digital techniques have greatly expanded the possibilities of applying ornament in design.

As well as looking at the c topic of ornament, the book reflects on what is currently happening in the light of current theoretical and historical research.

The author is a theorist and historian who also has a deep knowledge of the effects that digital culture has on architecture his most recent book deals with this set of issues.

A historical perspective is often necessary to understand the potential for change of the present.

He asks whether we may be on the verge of a radical redefinition of the relation between architecture and politics based on the emergence of a new relation between subjectivity and ornament.
