… the purpose of ORNAMENT in contemporary architecture?
A building’s ornamentation used to give the person on the street cues as to the importance of the building and its program and function. In contemporary society the way a building communicates through its ornamentation has changed significantly. Can buildings still speak to us and to the wider public? Do they even need to?
Melbourne is a great place to talk about the role of ornament in contemporary architecture and our architects engage with this question in a myriad of passionate and sophisticated ways. What are the foundations for these positions, what attitudes do they represent and in what ways do they engage the people who use them?
