LAUGIER PRIMITIVE HUT PDF

Laugier suggests that, until now, artists have been arbitrarily establishing their own rules, many of which rely on observation of ancient buildings as their bases and validation. The shortcoming of this method is that artists not only copy the beauty found in these buildings but also the mistakes and flaws. Without a set of principles it is difficult to distinguish between good and bad design, and the two consequently get confused. Imitators have also found incorrect flaws in examples, and due to their lack of original thought, they consequently led with error.

The Primitive Hut Idea by Laugier Laugier theorizes that man wants nothing but shade from the sun and shelter from storms—the same requirements as a more primitive human. The horizontal pieces that are laid upon them, afford us the idea of entablatures. The essay is considered a major treatise in architectural theory.

It is often cited by teachers of architecture and practicing architects even in the 21st century. It established the argument for future architectural movements, including 18th century Neoclassicism and the 21st century trend toward unadorned, eco-friendly tiny homes and small dwellings see Books to Help You Build a Smaller Home.

The Primitive Hut idea supports a back-to-nature philosophy, a romantic idea which gained popularity in the midth century and influenced literature, art, music, and architecture. Defining the essential elements of architecture is a statement of purpose, a philosophy that drives the work of an artist and practitioner.

Simplicity of design and the use of natural materials, what Laugier believes are architectural essentials, are familiar ideas that have been embraced by more modern architects, including Frank Lloyd Wright and the vision of Gustav Stickley at Craftsman Farms.

Ideas shape everything we create, including architecture. A useful project is to put into words the theories about architecture and design that you have developed—how should buildings be built?

How do you write philosophy? How do you read philosophy?

Marc-Antoine Laugier

This conception of the origin and history of architecture is adopted in all early modern treatises. It is the result not of archaeological investigation or speculation, but of a typical Enlightenment thought experiment. All buildings therefore always refer back to this first model, which embodies suprahistorical design principles. But how this is achieved, is left very implicit.
