Re: Traditional Architecture
Last night thought of the architecture of Aldo Rossi, especially the late works; quickly glanced through Aldo Rossi: The Life and Work of an Architect.
Been reading (intermittently the last few weeks) Durand's Precis of the Lectures on Architecture; I now see a strong connection between Rossi and Durand.
This morning, did a google search (see Mies on the front page today) rossi durand precis and 'found' several things including:
Rossi does reference Durand's Precis within The Architecture of the City; it's now many years since I've read this book; should read it again soon.
A pdf entitled "Can the language of classical architecture be used legitimately today?" (1998)
Now imagining a pdf entitled "The joy of using the classical language of architecture illegitimately today."
Otherwise, working on The Philadelphia School deterritorialized.
"Trust me, deterritorialized thinking isn't necessarily brillant, although for the most part uninhibited."

Re: Traditional Architecture
Wikipedia has a fairly concise entry on deterritorialization. Some the concepts there relate to how the Philadelphia School will be 'exhibited' via a virtual museum of architecture.
One can look at the history of Classical Architecture as one deterritorialization after another: first the Greeks, then the Romans, then back to Greece (via Constantine), then back to Italy (and the rest of western Europe via the Renaissance), then global (via colonialism), then Communist (via Stalin), then mnemonically (via Post-Modernism), and now artificially (via late capitalist sprawl) and illegitimately (via virtuality). Is each (subsequent) phase a somewhat less inhibited version of the one before?
