In task 2 I got to know my book (Architectura by Gabriel Kramer) and discovered that it was a Saulenbücher, for this reason my research started looking for another Säulenbücher in order to be able to compare the two books. Like many of the Säulenbücher the book that I found is titled the same way as my book, Architectura by Hans Vredeman de Vries. The two books are very similar from most points of view, they are curated with beautiful and very detailed drawings that try to highlight the various characteristics of the 5 orders. From other points of view, however, they are different. In fact sometimes the drawings for the same order are very different between the books. Furthermore, Gabriel Kramer was a carpenter from Zurich while Hans Vredeman de Vries was an architect, engineer, painter and draftsman. The difference of the background of the authors can be seen from the fact that in the book of Hans Vredeman de Vries there are detailed texts describing the different orders, in the book of Kramer instead there are only drawings. For the second book, I was looking for a contemporary book that represented architecture no longer through drawings but through photographs. So I found Soviet Asia by Roberto Conte; this is a book of photographs of brutalist buildings built in the Soviet Union. As in Kramer's book, this book has no text and only images. One might think that this book represents buildings objectively since they are represented through photographs. For sure photos can represent architecture in a moro objective way compared to drawing, but where to point the camera is actually a subjective choice of the photographer. We could therefore say that both Säulenbücher and Soviet Asia are books that represent architecture through two different mediums but that both of them are not fully faithful to the reality of things. Representing architecture and being faithful to reality is difficult.
