As architects devise ever more radical gestures with which to wow an increasingly architecture-literate public, the discipline itself has had to engage conceptions of "popular culture." This volume traces the discussions of a group of students, teachers and invited guests from the fields of architecture, landscape architecture and psychology, all of whom worked together at the TU (Technical University) Berlin to discuss this subject.

Buchbeschreibung Wasmuth Ernst Verlag Sep 2008, 2008. Taschenbuch. Buchzustand: Neu. Neuware - POP is a cultural phenomenon long associated with music and art but which is now more than ever finding relevance in the world of architecture and urban theory. Many of today's architects aspire to or are becoming POP stars, producing materials and designs which are mass-consumed in ever faster cycles of hyper-mediatisation, in which buildings and whole urban conglomerations operate as backdrops, setting the stage for products or serving directly as icons for individual institutions or even whole cities.Which aspects have lead to modern POP phenomena How is architecture using and reinterpreting these factors And why and how can POP culture enable a new positioning of architecture in today s society The 2007 symposium of the Architecture Design Innovation Program created a two-day public platform at the Technical University Berlin to discuss such questions on POP and its relationship to architecture. Students, architects and a distinguished panel of international guest critics judging student projects were participating. The book collects their contributions to the conference. 172 pp. Englisch.
