Abstract:

New Essentialism: Material Architecture' examines how architecture engages material to create effect through five critical historical thresholds represented by analytical precedents coupled with projective experimental design project families. Unpacking the fundamental methodologies of their geometric, material, spatial, and effectual sensibilities, each threshold builds an examination that reveals the essential methods and processes of design, illustrating the basis for the argument for a 'New Essentialism': its characteristics, methods and the sensibilities that mark its definition.
