Abstract

This paper proposes a re-reading of Frampton’s essay Towards A Critical Regionalism: Six Points for an Architecture of Resistance in relation to the role of history. For Frampton, the renewed interest in architectural history evident in the First International Architecture Exhibition of Venice (1980) represented a rejection of modernism’s commitment to both technological and social progress. Frampton’s objection to the exhibition’s deployment of visual signifiers of this history led him to reject history per se as a legitimate generator of architectural form.
How are Frampton’s own activities as a historian consistent with this rejection? Is the recovery of historical forms in architecture always linked to authoritarian modes of thought? And how does Critical Regionalism’s supposed resistance to historicist readings of architecture deal with its own history?
