Gohardani, Navid. "Architecture in Effect: A Glance at Critical Historiography." Archnet-IJAR: International Journal of Architectural Research, vol. 8, issue 1 (2014): 184-190
marks a relatively unexplored research domain in architecture. Despite the
obscure nature of this subject matter, architectural historiography equally
illuminates a hidden pathway to the historical interaction of architecture with
art or literature. Critical historiography adds another dimension to this
emerging research topic that further encapsulates multiple levels of criticism.
In recognition of a growing interest for historiography, it can be argued that
the critical aspects of historiography may serve as crucial instruments for an
enhanced understanding of architectural historiography. In this article, the
realm of architectural historiography is investigated through a
multidisciplinary perspective that revisits architectural criticism, critical
historiography, modern architecture, phenomenology, and a number of aspects of
architectural historiography in the Swedish Million Homes Program.
