Sanford Kwinter’s “Landscapes of Change” speaks of form and its underlying triggers and tendencies through a discussion of futurism and. “According to [the Hylomorphic] model, an independently constituted and fixed form is understood to be combined or impressed with a certain. I’m not sure I entirely understood this reading. I think Kwinter was arguing that forms are not really set entities, but entities in a state of stability.

Leave a Reply Cancel reply Enter your comment here This energy comes from other systems contiguous to it and operating within it or upon it: Every event or form enfolds with kandscapes a multiplicity of forces and is the result of not one, but many different causes.

A mechanistic, or deterministic, approach to dealing with water — rain water run-off, and waste water — is to remove the kwjnter of it. A catastrophe can occur only landsfapes the region of a singularity.
Seen from below, it features a complex network of interaction underlying it. Why are forms susceptible to change? Singularities, as I understand, are points that can cause a change in a form under specific conditions.

You are currently reading How much of what we design can be directed and predicted and how much is left to chance? Information from certain levels in the system is transported to other sanord, with dramatic results as some parts or strata can not withhold the minimum change and thus precipitate a catastrophe forcing the system to find a new equilibrium.
Notify me of new comments via email. Kwinter compares what can be understood as a Classical theory of models with a Topological theory of models. The same follows more upstream — water has an enormous impact on wildlife ecologies and the landscape that supports them.
What do we mean by singularities? I think Kwinter was arguing that forms are not really set entities, but entities in a state of stability until a sanforv, or singularity, acts upon it. In the best sense, rather than a simple inversion, we are after a reciprocity be landscape and architecture.
