On the legacy of encyclopedias
A.A. Dutto (2017). The Pyramid and the Mosaic. Otto Neurath's encyclopedism as a critical model. FOOTPRINT (Delft Architecture Theory Journal), 20, 53-69 | See more
This essay elaborates on the theory of encyclopedism elaborated by Otto Neurath and proposes a link with the Manuale dell’architetto published in 1946. Encyclopedism aspires to the creation of a universal language that overcomes the limits of communication between specialists of different scientific domains. With a focus on Mario Ridolfi the essay also attempts to apply encyclopedic theory to the domain of architecture.
