7 "Ages" of Postmodern Design
"IN ANY MAJOR MOVEMENT THERE ARE VARIOUS STRANDS RUNNING CONCURRENTLY WHICH HAVE TO BE DISTINGUISHED BECAUSE OF DIFFERING VALUES. HERE THE SIX MAIN TRADITIONS OF POST-MODERNISM SHOW THEIR COMMON GROUND AND DIFFERENCES AND ILLUSTRATE THE FACT THAT SINCE THE LATS 1970S POST-MODERN CLASSICISM AND URBANISM HAVE BEEN UNIFYING FORCES."

Urban Design as
a re-combinatory practice
3 Re-combinatory Urban Elements
The word enclave, derived from the French word to cut of or cleave, is fundamental to land subdivision, the making and documenting ofagricultural fields and culture. In Lynch’s terms it is concerned with “stasis” and rest, in Rowe’s terms a place where a particular actor canflourish, creating their own fragment and culture. Safe enclaves form the basis of all urban systems and dominated the culture of theagricultural world, becoming stopping places in the later systems of flow, like department stores or malls, factories or warehouses inproduction and consumption systems.
Armatures, on the other hand are linear sorting devices that handle flow, with carefully calibrated resting places along their edges (like
numbered storefronts along a high street). Rowe thought of armatures in terms of “Great Streets” like Fifth Avenue, New York, beside Central
Park, while Lynch thought of them as well-worn “Paths” used by pedestrians in the city. Paths could be stretched in space and time to become the
highway approaches to the city (in his A View from the Road with Donald Appleyard (1963). Robert Venturi, Denise Scott-Brown and Steven
Izenour provided the new notational system for observing such stretched armatures in their Learning From Las Vegas (1972). Armatures could
also be compressed down to 600ft inside multi-level malls as described by Barry Maitland in Shopping Mall; Planning and Design (1986).
enclaves as 1 or 2 or 3 depending on if they are in the single-center, agricultural model (e1), or in the twin pole, center and edge model of the
industrial system (e2) or the hybrid, post-industrial system of the “Reverse City” (e3). Similarly armatures can be categorized in this way as a1,
a2, a3, with the addition of notations for stretched (<a2>) or compressed (]a2[). I then propose formulas for the three models, where h is the
heterotopia which will be discussed below. When the actors employing enclaves dominate the City of faith = e1/ (a1+h1). When armatures
dominate the machine city = a2/a2+h2.

Heterotopias as places of change and recombination
Although both Lynch and Rowe and Koetter focused on urban actors, neither was very clear about how change could be
accommodated in their cities.
Michel Foucault in his short radio talk “Of Other Spaces” (1964) (which is on line at http://www.Foucault.info) provided a much more
convincing model of how urban actors changed cities through their control of activities in specific places with re-combinant codes.
Foucault called these places “heterotopias”, literally the “place of the other”. Heterotopias, like all enclaves have defined boundaries
that were more or less porous, and controlled entrances. Whereas normative enclaves are single function and mono-cultural,
Foucault describes heterotopias as multi-cellular, allowing disparate spaces, places, times, activities and people to co-exist within the
larger boundary of a single cell, held within the larger urban system. Heterotopias were unusual in the complexity of their structure
and feed-back mechanisms that enabled urban actors to co-exist
1. All cultures create heterotopias, and they take varied forms… (heterotopias of crisis, heterotopias of deviation)
2. Heterotopias constructed for one purpose can function in a very different fashion… (cemetary)
3. Heterotopias can juxtapose in a single real place where several spaces, several sites that are in themselves incompatible.
4. How heterotopias linked to precise slices in time
5. Gates and walls that presuppose a system of opening and closing… (enter->excluded. Guest room of Brazilian farmhouse, motel)
6. Inside urban system as sites of freedom and illusion or as sites of compensation and discipline… (Parisian brothel, colonies)
Ship, floating piece of space, a place without place, exists by itself,close in on itself and given over the infinity of the sea….
Foucault described this complex system of feed-back and control in terms that I call the 3 “m”s. The first “m” consists of a mirror
function (derived from Lacan’s theories of delirious self-definition in a mirror), so that heterotopias reflected their surrounding society
but reversed the dominant codes, allowing the co-existence of forbidden mixtures. The second “m” consists of a system requiring that
these places be reflexive miniatures, a city within a city, mirroring in miniature the larger surrounding city’s structure and values.
Finally the third “m” required that these mixing places had to be multiple, that is they contained multiple cells, perhaps in multiple
layers, in which to mix different categories of people or flows of energy.
Foucault tried to create a “heterotopology” to describe the logic of these re-combinant places
There was the “System of Emplacement”, the equivalent of Lynch’s City of faith, based on fixed centers. The second system of
“Extension”, based on Galileo’s geometry, where there was a continuous space of extension through which the celestial bodies
moved with machine like precision that could be calculated by man, revealing that old centers were merely resting points in a line of
movement, the equivalent of Lynch’s “city as a machine”. Finally there was the system of “Relations” that created fixed or mobile,
flexible “Sites”. Foucault gave as examples of such “Sites” in 1964 information moving with a set pattern thorough a communication
system, or cars that move in relationship to each other through a traffic jam.
In the system of “Emplacement” there were “heterotopias of crisis”, where individuals went and were
hidden in the fabric of the city without disturbing the dominant order of society (my h1 category). In the system of “Extension”
there were “heterotopias of deviance”, prisons, hospitals, asylums, cemeteries etc that removed those who could
not conform to the dominant work ethic to specialized institutions outside the city, where they could be reformed and helped by
specialists in a rigid discipline (my h2 category). In the system of “Relationships” there could be “heterotopias
of illusion” where codes were very flexible and fast changing, the opposite of the prisons. Foucault gave as examples theaters,
cinemas, museums, art galleries, the stock exchange, bordellos and bath houses, all places that could contain multiple actors, values
and time systems at once and could switch image systems and value systems very quickly (my h3 category).
Conclusion:Heterotopias in Network Cities
The initial opposition of city and countryside was
dissolved in the city-as-a-machine model, where
movement and stasis became the binary poles
Now we appear to operate in world of virtual or
conceptual mapping versus the physical world,
where advertising and media communications can
rapidly alter our perception of the network city.
Where heterotopias as places of change were once
hidden and then moved out of town, now
“heterotopias of illusion” and pleasure have
proliferated everywhere. They are in the old center
as tourist attractions, in the inner city as gardensuburbs
and middle class utopias, in the Edge City
as theme parks and malls.

The Rossian cemetery has no roof, floors, windows or doors; instead it is only a shell withopenings. Some of the openings are for light, others for views, access, and evencontainment of cremated bodies. Many do not hold this building in high esteem, as theyfind it depressing or ugly. But Rossi has found a way to make architecture metaphysical;the visitor is inevitably confronted with the thought of death, where truths are constant andirrevocable.

Literal and Phenomenal Transparency - Kolin Rowe & Robert Slutsky, 1955
Colin Rowe的文章 "transparency" 所確立的觀點來看，透明性會分成表像性 “Literal” 的透明,也就是物理性質上的透明，而另一種就是現象的 “Phenomenal”透明，意味著作為現象所發生的透明性。因為現象的透明的關係，透明不再是完全明確而轉變為一種不明確的，模擬兩可(ambiguous)的態。因此透明性似乎通過了解構，重組和雙關成為一種語言上的透明，一種寓意開始出現在透明的想法裡。透明性引申為透過看第一層的意義而思考其隱藏與後的幾層含意。
而在Colin Rowe 文章中最主要的比對就在於Walter Gropius - Bauhaus學院與Le Corbusier的 Villa Stein。大約同時間的兩棟建築，在透明的意義上生了兩種不同的詮釋。包浩斯學院的透明無法對現象上的透明提供一種含糊的透明概念(unambiguous) 因為其所使用的是玻璃的透明屬性。包浩斯展現了一系列的空間但是並非 ”空間維度上的矛盾" 因為其拒了其空間組織上任何一方有本質上的不同，因為被稱為阻止了一種潛在的模稜兩可的可能出現。而Villa stein則被認為展現了玻璃的平面特性，透過其立面玻璃與牆面的分格等手法，我們可以從其享受到某種猜測的樂趣。因為這裡的透明性不是由於玻璃窗所帶來的效果，於是就會回到一種基本的概念上，相互滲透卻不破壞對方。也因為這樣，Colin Rowe 敘述：人們可以享受看透一片玻璃幕牆後的樂趣，這樣或許可以同時看見建築的室與室外；但他因此幾乎不能意識到屬於現象的透明性的語義雙關所帶來的激動。
Literal transparency is perceived and definite, while phenomenal transparency is conceived and indefinite

拼裝者（原始心智） <> 工程師（真正的工匠）：從目標到方法
In his book The Savage Mind (1962, English translation 1966), French anthropologist Claude Lévi-Strauss used "bricolage" to describe the characteristic patterns of mythological thought. In his description it is opposed to the engineers' creative thinking, which proceeds from goals to means. Mythical thought, according to Levi-Strauss, attempts to re-use available materials in order to solve new problems

The Museumpark, measuring 440 by 130 meters, is bordered by the Kunsthal, the rose garden of Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen and a canal. The park serves a diverse public: those seeking peace and quite, passers-by, theatre and film audiences, and concertgoers. OMA designed a multifaceted landscape for the park, divided into four zones to accommodate this broad public. A piazza of white stone chips, in which a diagonal pattern of fruit trees with chalk-whitened trunks is planted, forms the junction between the NAI and the park. This area is bordered by a mirrored wall, which reflects the surroundings and forms the gate to the ?theaterplein? (theater plaza). The raised, tarmack zone with electricity delivery points can serve as a podium for open-air film screenings, theater performances and concerts. This ?hard? area contrasts markedly with the adjacent romantic garden for which the existing planting formed the basis. Landscape architect Yves Brunier devised an additional planting scheme to ensure that the garden should remain attractive throughout the year. The garden can be traversed via the 100 meter-long bridge that leads to the forecourt of the Kunsthal. The park?s main axis ends in a ramp that runs through the Kunsthal and emerges on the Westzeedijk dike.

Berlin Masques (1981) -
面具：再現 内/外 私密/公共 和善/邪惡.... 的調解
The masquse represent the mediation between inside , the private, the perverse and outside, the public and polite
These aspects stretch from a stylistic preference for basic, geometrically and tectonically controlled forms and elemental biomorphism (hair, beaks, eyes, legs) to typological variations on theaters, periscopes, caissons, funnels, traps, and labyrinths ; allegorically they include angels, animals, and machines as well as a set of reduced human characters (The Identity Card Man, The Mask Taker, The Lottery Woman, et al.) ; narratively, they employ traditions of folklore, carnivals, and masquerades in alternately melancholic and ecstatic moods; thematically they conjoin routinized craft and trade, falls from grace, and struggles of life and death.
