DASH (Delft Architectural Studies on Housing) is a thematic journal devoted to residential design. It is published twice a year.
What are the reasons for architects in different times, regions and circumstances harking back to images, forms or construction methods from the past? And what means do architects employ in order to achieve the intended effect? These are the pivotal questions in this sixth issue of DASH.
Reverting to the architectural past is hardly a new phenomenon. Old forms have served as inspiration at many junctures in the history of architecture: as a protest against dominant views, as a means to bring about renewal or purely because of nostalgia for times past. Rarely has this reversion remained undisputed. In particular, attempts to bring back old forms in modern-day materials have often roused the derision of the profession, whether these involved the early nineteenth-century Gothic Revival, or the work of the twentieth-century Delft School or ‘new traditionalism’. DASH: Living in a New Past presents a critical discussion of a selection of residential plans by Baillie Scott, Tessenow, Berghoef, Ridolfi, Krier, Spoerry, Bedaux and others.
DASH (Delft Architectural Studies on Housing Design) wants to make an international contribution to residential design from a Dutch perspective. DASH is published twice a year, in collaboration with the Chair of Architecture and Dwelling at the Faculty of Architecture of Delft University of Technology.
