The book assigned to me is called the architecture of Palladio and was written by Leoni Giacomo. I started by using Alices brain “Xenotheka Library” as topic of conversation i chose architecture and i typed the searching words public and private or the five orders.
The first Book which appeared in both attempts was the book called Modern Architectural Theory written by Harry Mallgrave published in 2005. This book is a historical survey which deals with the historical development of architectural theory, but mainly with European as well as American. I am sure that the important Renaissance architect Andrea Palladio himself is mentioned in the book. In the architecture of Palladio the concrete examples of Palladio are shown but especially in illustrations and not in a written form. I quickly realised how far-reaching this search engine is. So I decided to search more specifically to simplify the search. I decided to make the searching words more specific.
To switch up things i changed the brain to The Architecture Library and the topic of conversation to Palladio, and for the searching words i used private and public. After this search request i found the second book which was Elements of Architecture written by Rem Koolhaas. This book deals with the question of the boundary between private and public. Where does public begin and when does our privacy end? This aspect is also described in the book which was assigned to me, again accompanied by a lot of visual material.
The last but not least book which I found worth mentioning, it`s called The Possibility of an Absolute Architecture written by Pier Vittorio Aureli.
Especially one passage stuck with me
“The private space of the house is the basic social space that ensures the natural reproduction of its members; the public space of the agora is the political space where discussion and confrontation for the sake of the public interest takes place.”
With this statement, I end task 3 noting how omnipresent some themes are in architecture.
