– this research paper is to explore the re-emergence of totalitarian architecture due to technological advancements, such as in the world of George Orwell’s 1984. What is are the chances that we are headed towards such a world? If so why? After WWII architecture was perceived differently due to the technological progress being destructive, and politically imposing, communism etc. All due to technology and exerting power etc etc.
– use of officially printed/published sources only, such as books, journals (no use of internet based sources).
– many visual references, to show what is argued.
– use footnotes!
– the idea is to “prove” that Orwell was right in his prediction of the world (in an architectural sense) but his timing was wrong. Through the use of relevant sources and architecture of the past and present and technology that affects it and pushes it towards totalitarian architecture.
