Contents
Prelude. Mapping the question: the perspective hinge. Translation vs. transcription -- Architectural meaning and the tools of the architect -- Theories of vision and the reciprocity between seeing and being seen -- From natural perspective to artificial construction -- Binocular vision -- Sectioning the cone of vision: the nature of theory -- The science of the observer -- Back to modernity and beyond -- Casting light onto modernity -- From instrumental representation to collective participation? Variation one: Architectural representation and the distorted image. Against a progressive history of the image -- Scenographia and optical correction from Vitruvius to Perrault -- Model and scenography -- Sciographia and projected shadows -- The extent of infinity -- Relocating anamorphosis -- Constructing a distorted order -- When the center becomes peripheral -- The confrontation between theory and practice. Variation Two. Cosmological perspectives. Setting the world in motion -- Redefining a hierarchical universe -- Recentering the world -- Eccentric point of view -- Perspective fantaisies -- A world of scientific light and objective shadows -- Framing the earth -- Cosmological volumes -- Truth as measurement: fortifications and isometry. Variation Three. The image without an obsever in scopophilic world. Between darkness and light -- From perspectivism to pure objectivity -- From physics to pataphysics -- The perspective hinge -- From measurement to abstraction: isometry and axonometry -- The reversibility of axonometry -- The collapse of the image and represented object -- Axonometry as collage: Le Corbusier's Poeme de l'angle droit -- Time into lived space: Le Corbusier's La Tourette. Coda. Projection revisited: the reversibility of optics -- Digital space -- Philosophical corollary
