Jorge Silvetti's essay, "The Beauty of the Shadows," investigates the theoretical and ideological architecture of Tafuri, Agrest, and Gandelsonas in order to find a middle ground for the architectural process.
Diana Agrest describes the framework of the built world, made up of Design and Non-Design, how cultural systems communicate, and how to productively read meaning from the built environment.
Gandelsonas gives us a clear and scientific critique of linguistic theory in architecture, with specific attention to Peter Eisenman, in hopes of producing the first real theory of Architecture.
11 Weeks of Michael Hays, day 1: Manfredo Tafuri, "Toward a Critique of Architectural Ideology", 1969:
A summary of Tafuri's epic theorizing of architectural history through the capitalist lens, the process and consequences of that narrative, the identity transformations of architecture from the 18th-20th centuries, and how architectural ideology led to the post-modern crisis.
