Reading 50 – Taron

Integration within architecture is an enduring and complex strategy to inform space with populations and intensities. Integration works to define the boundaries, as Taron suggests, from within and extending in scale to an undetermined and diffuse condition. This extends space beyond the consideration of exterior and interior, creating temperate and temporal zones of architecture which each require a integrated appraoch to resolution. The variety in strength and weakness throughout architecture now requires response and control that is specific to singular conditions, and yet serves any number of affected agents. As all of these factors come together in space and form, the architect is left to deal with the problem of designing the appropriate systematic response. Whether or not the architect can manage these factors is what will define the success of the building, and the resolution with which it conveys a relationship to the public condition. The integrated design now must embody any number of cultural and socio-economic factors in order to just survive. Will this result in the marginalization of architecture proper? Or is architecture being redefined as an amalgamation of a slew of sub-disciplines? What other disciplines may we see in the future that bridge into architecture?
