Generic Sublime, The

In stock (50 items available)
The Generic Sublime recognises the normative consistency across prevailing developmental forms in the age of globalisation and explores how a contemporary notion of the sublime emerges out of the generic. Visionary in nature and awe-inspiring in scale, The Generic Sublime anticipates groundbreaking territorial forms of architecture, complex in their organisation and singular in their presence. Co-published with Harvard University Graduate School of Design.By abstracting the organisational protocols of skyscraper collectives, high-rise housing agglomerations, mixed-use conglomerates, new central districts, outstretched suburban enclaves, and instantaneous satellite cities, architect and theorist Ciro Najle, together with students at the Harvard University Graduate School of Design, develop new architectural models for encompassing the unprecedented potential of the extra-extra-large.Ciro Najle is Dean at Universidad Torcuato Di Tella School of Architecture and Urban Studies, and Design Critic at the Harvard University Graduate School of Design.
