Kenneth Frampton and the Subterfuges of Bourgeois Taste
This chapter focuses on Kenneth Frampton, who believed that making buildings where people could pursue aesthetic experiences was an ethical commitment dependent on, and appropriate to, progressive social politics. Despite his enormous influence in architectural culture around the world, the experiential core of Frampton’s theory of critical regionalism remains unexamined. A deep comprehension of how Frampton understood aesthetic experience is needed so as not to minimize its political thrust and import in architecture.
