Monadnock contributes to OASE#103, "Critical Regionalism Revisited." More than 35 years ago architectural historian Kenneth Frampton propelled the concept of ‘Critical Regionalism’ in his well-known article ‘Towards a Critical Regionalism’ (1983). The article was a response to a generic and global (post)modernism. From the date of publishing until today architectural discourses witnessed references to this concept crtitical regionalism, particularly evoked by a growing concern about the local scale in a world of global powers. In the forthcoming issue of the architectural journal OASE a number of architects and architectural theorists revisited the concept, questioning its genealogy, reception over the years, and sustainability in current and future architectural and urban assignments.
On Thursday May 16th 2019, the issue will be presented at the Hochparterre Bookshop in Zürich center with responses by architectural historians Stanislas von Moos and Irina Davidovici.
