From Chamber to Transformer

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.
