Trans-disciplinarity: The Singularities and Multiplicities of Architecture

  • Lukasz Stanek
  • Tahl Kaminer


This inaugural issue of Footprint aims at understanding today’s architecture culture as a negotiation between two antithetical definitions of architecture’s identity. The belief in the disciplinary singularity of architectural objects, irreducible to the conditions of their production, is confronted – in discourse and design – with the perception of architecture as an interdisciplinary mediation between multiple political, economic, social, technological and cultural factors. With the concept of trans-disciplinarity, the negotiation between these two positions is investigated here as an engine of the ‘tradition of the present’ of contemporary architecture – the discourses and designs which emerged in the 1960s and defined orientation points for today’s architectural thought and practice.
