Architecture  

Ornament (Paperback)

Antoine Picon

-  

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.
