The subject of the symposium will be Tabula Rasa.
Saint Thomas Aquinas, adhering to Aristotle, claimed that we have been born tanquam tabula rasa, in qua nihil est depictum (like tabula rasa, in which absolutely nothing is composed). This fact would seem extremely not likely when addressing the way a project is born, usually related to other situation as history, internet site, variations, clientele, budget, and all people situations that establish the function, and to which it would seem very helpful to appear at what has been accomplished before. However, there were moments in time when ‘doing Tabula Rasa’ appeared the only way of resolving a certain architectural issue, some of the urbanism proposed by the present day movement is a excellent case in point of this method.&#thirteen
This way, Tabula Rasa will be an possibility for PhD candidates in architecture at all levels of progress to interact in 1 of this three points of check out about this specific concept:&#thirteen
A. Tabula Rasa from the position of see of the process of the thesis or a investigation project. Commencing from scratch on a subject matter. This area refers to the kick off of a investigation function: the methodology, the way to concentrate on the matter, the sources, the ‘how know’, the state of affairs about the topic, etc. &#thirteen
B. Tabula Rasa in the background of architecture, city organizing, construction, and so forth., like these moments in historical past when this concept was utilized as a undertaking strategy as nicely as the desire for problematizing the chance of Tabula Rasa at the beginning of any architectural perform, could it be a new architectural function, an architectural restoration or even any architectural analysis.
C. Tabula Rasa referring to the way architecture is nowadays believed. At the existing time, technological improvement and new supplies study has led on to the layout of new architectural types as effectively as the development of new metropolitan areas without having having to pay also considerably interest to geographical, climatic or cultural constraints. We could just take as an illustration the new urban landscape that has been created in the United Arab Emirates. Is the radical implementation of the principle Tabula Rasa a possible simple fact in the contemporary architectural scene?
