Epistemological Challenges in the Methodology of Theorised Architectural History
Iain Borden and Jane Rendell
This article explored the relationship of critical theory to architectural history in terms of a progression through nine different methodological moves: from theory as object of study, to new architectures, to framing questions, to critical history, to interdisciplinary debates, to disclosing methodology, to self-reflexivity, to re-engagement with theory and finally to praxis.
