NOVELTY: PART 1, RECURRENCE OR RECOMBINATION   <

2018.01, The Oslo School of Architecture and Design


Drawing on Novelty: A history of the new, by Michael North, a consideration on historical and philosophical attempts at defining the NEW, and the

openness that the term NOVELTY conjures.


To alter. To remain. To repeat. To substitute. Originality. Autonomy.

Recurrence. Recombination.


NOVELTY.

Can the quality of not having been before be perceived in something (in a place, or a work of architecture)?

Is the familiar really necessary, in the places we inhabit and dwell?

What of the NEW lives on, as something identifiable or describable?

What, of our material - the city, the dwelling – is recurring, recombining?
