Lecture: Rationality and Design Decisions in Architecture: From Bauhaus to BIM
Gernot Weckherlin (Germany) Rationality and Design Decisions in Architecture: From Bauhaus to BIM
This presentation will offer a critical view upon ‘rationality’ as a paradigm for design decisions from modernist Bauhaus to today’s Building Information Modeling in Architecture.
Concepts of rationality and rationalism had a long lasting effect upon design decisions as they offer a role model for architects and engineers to open the way for ‘objective’ or even ‘scientific’ ways of professional action. A closer analysis of rationality in architectural design beyond the history of modernism may open up a new discussion of its relevance today.
Dr. Lücmann studied architecture at RWTH Aachen University. Since 1993 he has a professorship at the University of Anhalt.
