An approximation to a young person Eisenman | Miquel Lacasta Codorniu

Between 1963 and 1973 Eisenman there writes, his doctoral thesis The Formal Basis of Modern Architecture, [1] of vital importance in his later work, in 1963, Towards an Understanding of Form in Architecture, in Architectural Design in the number 457, also in 1963, Notice on Conceptual Architecture: Towards to Definition, in Design Quaterly nº78-79 in 1970 and Cardboard Architecture; House I and House II in Five Architects: Eisenman, Burden, Gwathmey, Hejduk, Meier, whose publisher was Arthur Drexler and edited in 1972 by Oxford University Press in New York.

A young person Peter Eisenman, 1970 | Phtography: Gregory Gale |

In these seminal texts, the idea of complexity appears as a background noise of the questions that worry a young person Eisenman, and without making a theory of the complexity explicit since yes it does Venturi in Complexity and Contradiction in Architecture. On the contrary, Eisenman lucidly proves to be much more succeeded in the direction of his investigations as the time has demonstrated.

Begining, Eisenman surprises for outpost of his reflections for this epoch, on having proposed in the conclusions of his doctoral thesis the idea of a theory of the architecture as a constant application of beginning and as an opened system, without a closed end of the theoretical rules, being advanced initially of uncertainty [2] that from the scientific world and that lands in the architecture at the end of the decade of the 80 and beginning of the 90.
