Daniel. Libeskind, Christian Norberg-Schulz, and Kenneth Frampton, among others, declare that the proper function of architecture is place-making. How do these post-modern architects characterize place, and why do they see it as the most important factor in design? How do they contrast their concept of place with what they see as the placelessness of modern architecture, that is, what do they see missing in the modern; and why should we care about the difference? Finally, How does this use of “placelessness” reflect Heidegger’s assertion the plight of modern people is “the plight of homelessness”? The post-modern architects that we have considered all explicitly acknowledge an indebtedness to the philosophy of Martin Heidegger (phenomenology) and most often mention his essay, “Building Dwelling Thinking,” that we have read. Once you have clearly defined and articulated the meaning and importance of place in the post-modern (as per above), discuss the relationship between Heidegger’s concept of dwelling as the basis for the post-modern concept of place. How is Heidegger’s way of thinking about dwelling and things incorporated into the thinking about place in these post-modern architects? Why is dwelling always a dwelling-place. How does the post-modern concept of “Poetic architecture” reflect Heidegger’s assertion that “man dwells poetically”?
