Post Script to Rowe and Koetter's Collage City post and a review of the series's place in the Structuralist v. Post Structuralist debate (read: a review of Structuralism and Post Structuralism). CHECK IT.
"11 Weeks of Michael Hays" : Colin Rowe and Fred Koetter : Collage City, 1973.
Our easy days of theory are trumped by an avalanche of post-modern non-speak, and we get a glimpse through the debris of Rowe's theory of Collage as both method and justification for liberal formalism and architectural autonomy.
"11 Weeks of Michael Hays" : Colin Rowe : "Introduction" to Five Architects, 1972.
Colin Rowe, like others, is fighting to restore architecture's autonomy from ideology and 'content,' making a way for architecture to proceed, after modernism, as a formal art.
