Thesis (M.Arch.)--Carleton University (Canada), 2004
This thesis will discuss the relationship between architecture and philosophy, and reflect on what role theoretical ideas on aesthetics have played within the built environment. The primary body of the text will discuss the aesthetic theories of Marx and Engel and how their ideas of the role of the artist influenced architects following the Russian Revolution, focusing on the Narkomfin House, designed by Ginzburg and Milutin in 1928. The second portion of this thesis is a speculation on what contemporary architecture can glean from modern philosophical theories, specifically those of Gilles Deleuze. A brief essay will serve as the bridge between the first section of the thesis and the design component, a proposed expansion to the University Centre at the University of Ottawa
