Projected Evolution: Expanding Self into the Environs
Taylor, Mark (2005) Projected Evolution: Expanding Self into the Environs. In Wilson, Andrew (Ed.) Review 2004 : projects review of architecture at QUT in 2004. Queensland University of Technology, School of Design, Brisbane, pp. 27-34.
In this short essay I discuss the relationship between the body and tectonic surroundings, particularly settings generated by the imprint of an inhabiting subject as it projects into the environs. Such a debate is contingent on both traditional and modernist orthodoxies of western architecture, particularly as they attempt to distinguish between surface effects emanating from a subject and those imposed by tectonic condition. My concern is to discuss the imprint of the body in its environs as a form of projected evolution, a term borrowed from the philosopher Gerald Heard, but also as a means of understanding how interior space can bear the imprint of an inhabiting body, a body that leaves traces.
