After Typology: The Suffering of Diagrams
Architectural Design, “Contemporary Processes in Architecture” (2000)
  • William Braham, University of Pennsylvania

In an examination of the diagram as a generator of architectural form and process, William Braham looks at how building typology has historically provided the dominant model for architectural working methods. In addition, he asks why dynamic diagramming and non-linear processes are now being adopted by the neo-avant-garde but neglected by mainstream practice.
