ABSTRACT
The article presents a general discussion on the direction of contemporary architecture. We can freely speak that postmodernity, understood in its philosophical core as a search for meaning in architecture, as a strategy of building our environment is over. What comes next? Some say, from lack of better naming, that we live in post-postmodern times. Term post-postmodernity is a call for new strategy of shaping our societies and environment. Author’s aim is to propose a discussion on this topic from Kenneth Frampton’s concept of Architecture of Resistance. Resistance from urge to constantly design something new, something that will be shown in journals, from “myth of new forms”. Times of “meaning in architecture’ are over and architecture needs to be defended from political and economic drive to build new meaning, new icons in architecture. We can seek inspiration in our practise not in avant-garde, but in arriere-garde, as presented by Kenneth Frampton in 1983. Aim of rearguard is to defend the back, those who are in the end, who are poor, anonymous, casual. This article proposes that efforts of architects and architectural theory should be put on casual, everyday architecture that shapes our everyday lives.
