Lewerentz’s research seems to move from within, free to varying degrees from pursuing a form or a language at all costs, but through the continuous interrogation of a personal, non-linear historical time, of the discipline as a critical and operational context to be investigated, from the drawing to the construction site, as places of design experimentations. In the necessary brevity of the essay, we can identify at least three of his internal interrogations as pivotal points of research, always endogenous, from inside the discipline: about the relationship with the classical canon, with architecture as construction, and with architecture as pure form.

Abstract

Lewerentz’s research seems to move from within, free to varying degrees from pursuing a form or a language at all costs, but through the continuous interrogation of a personal, non-linear historical time, of the discipline as a critical and operational context to be investigated, from the drawing to the construction site, as places of design experimentations. In the necessary brevity of the essay, we can identify at least three of his internal interrogations as pivotal points of research, always endogenous, from inside the discipline: about the relationship with the classical canon, with architecture as construction, and with architecture as pure form.
