Phrase additive architecture

PhrasesPortable
  • "' Additive Architecture "'is an approach used by Danish architect J鴕n Utzon to describe his development of architectural projects on the basis of growth patterns in nature.
  • In his " Additive Architecture " manifesto in 1970, he tells us how he saw the phenomenon reflected in a group of deer at the edge of a forest or in the pebbles on a beach, convincing him that buildings should be designed more freely rather than in identical box shapes.
  • Mogens Prip-Buus, one of Utzon's closest colleagues, reports that the term was coined in 1965 in Utzon's Sydney office when, after a discussion of the social structures in Britain and Denmark, Utzon suddenly jumped up and wrote " Additive Architecture " on the wall.
  • Examples of the Additive Architecture approach in Utzon's work can also be seen in his designs for the unbuilt Silkeborg Museum, the Farum Town Centre proposal, the Herning expansion plan including a " school town " and the flexible Espansiva approach for low-cost housing which only resulted in a prototype.
