From the Monumental Landscape to the Monument

Fernando Quesada

Texto completo:




This article discusses the Ocatilla camp, built in the Arizona desert by Frank Lloyd Wright as an experimental architecture in 1929. This camp is proposed as a prototype with two temporary vectors, one would be to a possible genealogy and the other a possible future development. Going to the past should be traced in the House for the Christian Family by Catherine Beecher proposed in 1869, while that to the future could be made a epigone in the Environmental Bubble of Reyner Banham and of François Dallegret in 1965. The text explores the possibilities of an ideal architecture for the monumental landscape, perfectly exemplified in the three cases, compared to architecture as a monument to the landscape, which exemplify Taliesin West, his monumental counterpart.
