FENOMENOLOGICKÁ INTERPRETÁCIA ARCHITEKTÚRY CHRISTIANA NORBERGA-SCHULZA
Phenomenological interpretation of architecture by Christian Norberg-Schulz
Languages of publication
The paper´s focus is on a proposed reconstruction of Norberg-Schulz’s phenomenological method of interpretation. This reconstruction derives from two of his relevant writings: the book Intentions of Architecture (1963) and the paper Kahn, Heidegger and the Language of Architecture (1979), while taking into the consideration the whole corpus of his completed theoretical, historiographical-architectural work. The reconstruction proceeds in two steps: first, we reconstruct Norberg-Schulz’s models of architectural work and following is the reconstruction of interpreting models. The proposed reconstruction also aims at introducing terminological instruments for both of the above-mentioned steps and aspects of interpretation. While preserving the continuity, we redefine basic Norberg-Schulz’s categories. This enables us to enter the discussion about two stages of Norberg-Schulz’s thinking and about two Norberg-Schulzs, respectively: structural-semiotic and phenomenological-existentialist ones.
