Residential Architecture Assembled/the Prose & Poetry of Construction

In celebration of the 80th Anniversary of the Publication of Antonin and Noémi Raymond’s Architectural Details (1938), the Raymond Farm Center for Living Arts and Design and CRAN have organized a one-day symposium on the history, theory, and evolution of modern residential architectural detailing, from the early 20th century to contemporary architecture today.

Since the beginning of modern architecture at the turn of the last century, architects and designers have faced and embraced new challenges: the integration of new technologies; the emergence of new materials and methods of construction; new concepts of space and form; new relationships between the “inside and out;” and even new ideas about the relationship between architecture and nature itself. All of this led to a new conception and meaning of construction. The modern architectural detail became an expression and celebration of “the New,” and would act as a more authentic replacement for traditional ornamental systems and their meanings. This symposium will explore this history and evolution, examine where we are today, and look toward the future of residential architecture’s technical detailing and design.
