Magdalena BOROWSKA – Beauty and (Modern) Architecture: From the Criterion of Aesthetic Appraisal to the Phenomenological noesis

Cena brutto: 7,00 PLN za szt.

The article examines the category of beauty in its application to modern architecture. An insight into the discourse on beauty continued in the European aesthetics and a discussion of the applications of various objective and subjective approaches to beauty in the architecture of chosen historical periods provide the background against which the author points to the aspects beauty which, while disregarded in traditional aesthetic considerations, have surfaced in the phenomenological aesthetics proposed by Günther Pöltner and Martin Seel. The author has been inspired to undertake this particular issue by her own aesthetic experiences triggered, among others, by the architectural space designed by Peter Zumthor. Having adopted Pöltner and Seel’s approach, the author presents a defence of the timelessness of the category of beauty and discusses its modern phenomenological justifications, thus pointing to the need for adopting the attitude of non-intentionality and openness to noesis in the perception of modern architecture.
