    初步認識建築史本身論述的歷史形構(the historical formation of the discourse of architectural history)是本週的主題,建議試著由建築史的角度思考更貼身的困境:現代建築是在什麼脈絡下在近代亞洲建構的?以及,面對當前的全球資訊化趨勢下建築與規劃教育的範型轉移,亞洲的建築教育,以至於建築史教育要如何因應?然後,由下週開始建築史論述實踐中的抵抗與反省軌跡。

    The discussion will consider the relation of architectural history and the general discipline of history, the traditional practices and goals of architectural historians, the present state and future thrusts of the field. This is by way of introduction to the more detailed study of schools of architectural history which will engage us in subsequent weeks.

    III. Basic Documents of Architectural History (建築史的基本文獻)
    Based on a case study, we will discuss the visual and literary documents from which architectural history is composed. The list includes: the building fabric itself; primary documents such as drawings, models, contracts, commemorative medals, letters, inscriptions; secondary documents such as travel accounts, vedute, manuals of iconography.

    IV. Reconstruction and Restoration (重建與修復)
    The recreation of architectural reality on the basis of literary descriptions, conceptual drawings, and material remains. Individual reports will focus on one famous instance and review the issues involved, the history of the problem, the nature of the results.

You might look up the entry on "Restoration" in The Encyclopedia of World Art: the issue of architectural restoration on Knossos, Osttia, Pompeii, Williamsburg, etc. and thinking of Evans, Viollet-le-Duc, even the Getty Museum.

    V. Methods of Architectural History (建築史方法)
    1. The Aesthetic/ Formalist Approach (美學/形式主義取向)
    1.1. Style. 風格

    (1)  * Lang, Berel, eds. The Concept of Style, 1979.
    (2) * Ackerman, J.S., “Style”, Art and Archaeology, 1963, pp.164- 186. ( and “Postscript”, 1991)
    (3) * Gombrich, E.H., entry on Style in The International Encyclopedia of the Social Sciences.
    (4) * Schapiro, M., “Style”, Anthropology Today, A.L. Kroeber ed., 1953, pp.287-312; reprinted in Aesthetic Today, M. Philipson ed., 1961, pp.81-113.
    (5) * Frankl, P., “The ‘Crazy’ Vaults of Lincoln Cathedral” Art Bulletin, No.35, 1953, pp.95-108: good methodological arguments against a determinist development of style. Ref.:Frankl's textbook and Kostof's article on Frankl:
    (6) Frankl, P., Principles of Architectural History, first published as Die Entwicklungphasen der neueren Baukunst. First English translation, 1932.
    (7) Kostof, S., “Paul Frankl's Principles of Architectural History”, in Porphirios, D., ed., On the Methodology of Architectural History, 1981, pp.21-24.

    Seminal texts (开创性的文献):

    (2) * Facillon, H., Vie des formes, 1934, translated as The Life Form in Art, New York, 1942, by Hogan and Kubler.
    You should also be aware of Wolfflin's predecessors and contemporaries, e.g. Adolf Goller (Entstehung der architectonischen Stilformen, 1888, or the slightly earlier Zur Aesthetik der Architektur), Gottfried Semper, the great Alois Riegl (Stilfragen, 1893), or the so called "formalist" school of art history Emil Kaufmann who remains untranslateded into English. ref.:Rkywert, J., “Gottfroed Semper and the Problem of Style”,Quintavalle, A.C., "The Philosophical Context of Riegl's Stilfragen",Teyssot, G., "Neoclassic and 'Autonomous' Architecture: The Formalism of Emil Kaufmann".

    (4) Poppeliers, J. et al., What Style Is It?, 1976.
    And there is a lot of recent material you ought to be familiar with, e.g. Finch, M., Style in Art History, 1974; or the recent reformulation of the formalist approach by Arnkeim, R., The Dynamics of Architectural Form, Berkeley, 1977; compare also with:

     1. 4. Applications (應用)
    Select an architectural style, and report on the following: What are the characteristics of the style? who formulated them? how useful or successful has this designation proved? Remember this is historiography. We are concerned with the making of styles by historians.
    (1) Neoclassicism: see H. Honour's book of that name, 1968.
    (2) Roman vaulted style: see W. MacDonald, The Architecture of Roman Empire, 1965 and new revised ed.' also see his new book: Hadrian's Villa and Its Legacy, 1995.

    這是建築史與藝術史的重要知識傳統之一,值得多閱讀並討論它們與文化地理學者共享的某些人文主義的共同遺產,羅納?那普(Roland Knapp)的中國民居研究是一個需要做理論比較的好例子。
