Tectonics,the expressiveness of an architectural form,phases of the style development,agglutination,agglutinates psychology of vision,


Architectural morphogenesis has a cyclical nature.The time of existence of each cycle is connected - not necessarily when the absolute coincidence - with epochs of the civilization development, wherein technological achievements, economy, forms of the social organization and the aesthetic worldview are joined together, realized as the cultural integrity, visually ascertained by the architectural style. Each style has phases of the birth, the golden age and the stagnation. The detector of morphological changes is the minor,at first glance, signs of the object congestion of architectural forms withprominent decorative features: symbols, plastic figures and color, which are necessary or redundant. The redundancy of equipping facade surfaces with ornamental elements and decor discredit the architectural form, which takes on the label of agglutination, when elements of decor are stuck on a facade - symptoms of the style diminishment phase. The abundance and the compositional meaninglessness of agglutinates give a signal to changing the architectural paradigm and restructuring the aesthetic worldview, shortening the time frame for the architecture renewal, ultimately aimed at establishing the priority of the pure form. The pure form, out of which the ancient architecture, the international architecture and high-tech had begun, is constantly threatenedwith the agglutination. Maybe it is high time to stop the reincarnation process?
