Sinopsis de Arquitectura sin arquitectos

In Arquitectura sin arquitectosOriginally published in 1964 by the MoMA in New York on the basis of the exhibition of the same name curated by Bernard Rudofsky, the theorist flees from the restricted discipline that has governed our sense of the history of architecture and analyzes the art of building as a universal phenomenon. Leaving aside the geographical and social prejudices that have eclipsed what he considers a total panorama of architecture, Rudofsky offers glimpses of worlds that until now were unknown to us and introduces the reader to vernacular architecture, an architecture produced not by specialists, but by the spontaneous and continuous activity of a people with a common heritage. Often the beauty of this "primitive" architecture has not been taken into account because it is an accidental phenomenon, but today we recognize in it an art form that is the result of human intelligence applied to exceptionally human lifestyles, which goes beyond any economic or aesthetic consideration and is an inexhaustible source of inspiration for industrial man trapped in chaotic cities.
