The Structure and Content of Architectural Experience: Scruton on Architecture as Art

http://aesthetics.ff.cuni.cz/archive/313/the-structure-and-content-of-architectural-experience-scruton-on-architecture-as-art

 

The notion of architectural experience has been explored by Roger Scruton in a essay in which he provides an account of both its structure and content, along with clarifications of certain key concepts in architectural criticism, such as architectural success and architectural beauty. In this article, I introduce Scruton’s theory and argue that, despite its intuitive appeal, some crucial elements for the appreciation of buildings as works of architecture are not adequately addressed there. I then propose various ways of addressing these criticisms.
