MANNERISM AND MODERN ARCHITECTURE COLIN ROWE PDF

The parallels seen between Modernism and Mannerism are only valid if Architecture is seen as contrivance and a series of devices. For example, the presence of elements of a different scale in immediate juxtaposition in Modern and Mannerist architecture lead to the conclusion that both architectural movements, Mannerism and Modern, had a commonality. Mannerism suffered from drawing our attention to individual elements; an absence of a holistic approach. This focusing on individual elements is a result of self-centred and cosmos-ignored manner of looking. Only if the individual sees meaning can such a focus on elements and devices be acceptable.

The parallels seen between Modernism and Mannerism are only valid if Architecture is seen as contrivance and a series of devices.

For example, the presence of elements of a different scale in immediate juxtaposition in Modern and Mannerist architecture lead to the conclusion that both architectural movements, Mannerism and Modern, had a commonality.

Mannerism suffered from drawing our attention to individual elements; an absence of a holistic approach. This focusing on individual elements is a result of self-centred and cosmos-ignored manner of looking. Only if the individual sees meaning can such a focus on elements and devices be acceptable. Colin Rowe and the importance he places on Mannerism throughout the essay suggests that he sees meaning as existing solely within the individual.

Mannerist architecture as well as Post-modern architecture sees a problem with function and reacts by employing contradictory devices; columns that do not support, stairs that are impossible to climb. Function understood in a meaningful way is not seen as a device, nor a contrivance. Function cannot be understood as a purpose arbitrarily applied. Function cannot be divorced from the object as a whole. Outward appearances should resemble inner purposes, and function cannot be divorced from aesthetics.

Mannerism and Modern architecture

Though this littlc piecc, particularly in its discussion o f Cubism, has been painful t o me since before the day of its publication, i t has here been allowed to stand substantially a published. Though a present day rehearsal s of its arguments in which I s t i l l believe would surely employ a profoundly different strategy, because this article has long enjoyed a certain notoriety I can see no way o f correcting i t s obscurities and maintaining i t s sense. Today the art historical discussion o f Mannerism has achieved levels o f sophistication and detachment which c. There are still two bodies o f information- the one art historical, the other modern architectural-and the possibilities o f their convergence in a work o f rational exegesis still remain remote. Sincc the writing o f this article the initiatives o f Robert Venturi have, to some extent, illuminated the situation. Nevertheless, while Venturi has been quite unabashed in his parade o f elements o f Mannerist origin and while, by these means, he has extended the theater o f architectural discourse, the theme modern architecture and Mannerism still awaits the extended and positive interpretation which it deserves. This building is obviously out of key with his later works; and, by its inclusion with them, the didactic emphasis of their collection might have been impaired.
