• Mediating Fineness | Richard Andersen
Mediating Fineness begins with a singular intention: to re-establish 21st Century Architecture back into the Public Conscience after almost a century of neglect.Starting with research in Rome and a prospective project in Nanning, China, the Thesis sets out to critique contemporary practice’s lack of a grain, leading to a dissociation with the human scale. It proposes an idea of “Fineness”, a term first coined by Reiser and Umemoto in the Atlas of Novel Tectonics and suggests a new approach towards Construction Technology and Design Methodology. It argues that a conscious control of the Fineness is necessary, manipulating and articulating the Architecture so to connect with its’ audience. The research points out the popularity of classical Architecture lies not in its’ supposed history, but the way it is operated to be perceived at an occupants scale. “Ornament” is merely one form of this articulation of Fineness.
