Architektur und Maschine sind zentrale Gegenstande menschlicher Gestaltung.

Wie funktioniert ihr Zusammenspiel? In thematischer Breite und historischer Tiefe gehen die Beitrage des Bandes dem vielfaltigen Wechselspiel dieser Phanomene nach, vor allem im Hinblick auf drei Aspekte: Maschinen, die dem Entwurf und der Errichtung von Gebauden dienen, solche, die ihrer Arbeit innerhalb der Wande und Strukturen von Bauten verrichten und - insbesondere - Maschinen, die als Modelle und Bilder des architektonischen Denkens fungieren.

Dabei zeigt sich, dass die Thematik der Maschine im Rahmen der Architektur bis heute nicht nur an konkrete technische Fragen, sondern vielmehr an allgemeine Programme, Prozesse und Performanzen und damit an grundlegende Kategorien des gebauten Raumes ruhrt. What is the nature of the interaction between architecture and machines as key objects in human design and how does this interplay work?

The contributors to the volume explore this multifaceted interchange in its broad thematic manifestations and historical depth, focusing above all on three aspects: machines that assist in the design and construction of buildings, those that perform their tasks inside the walls and structures of buildings, and - in particular - machines that act as models and images of architectural thought.

What emerges is that the subject of machines within the architectural framework has been rooted, up until the present day, not simply in concrete technical questions, but rather to a far greater extent in general programs, processes, and performances, and thus in fundamental categories of built space.
