Re-connecting Identity With Design Discourse
MetadataShow full item record
This paper hopes to initiate a series of discourses on the role and definition of the concept of ‘identity’ within architecture research and design sensibility. It is hoped that this exercise will encourage the re-evaluation and redefinition of the historicity within architecture and urban design sensibility and the role of ‘identity’ as a vital consonance that connects both. How do we situate the ongoing urban and architectural discourses and research within this rhetoric? As a case in point, the authors review and analyse the Amsterdam’s iconic 17th century Ring of Canals and its morphological repercussions on new developments such as the late 19th centur y extension of the city with the development of the Java Island.
