During this process, an architect makes all sorts of accommodations, confrontations, and negotiations that result in decisions about the levels of the ground, the degree of roof overhang and wall porosity, the amount of control and flexibility in the building skin, the ways that prefabricated items modulate the climate or environment, and the type of boundary between inside and outside.
These decisions accumulate in a new building, in a new technologically modified climate, and in a new representation of the site or topography. Hence, for Leatherbarrow, like Alberti, topography is not simply that which describes the surface of the earth.
Rather, it is the aggregation of figures and situations that are known and through which one orders experience and knowledge. Through this account, the reader comes to appreciate the ways in which designers as well as mapmakers discern order through precise, but partial, knowledge.
The urban topography mapped by Alberti and described by Leatherbarrow is not exhaustively recorded.
It has gaps in its field or matrix, in locations available for future discovery, and in creation. The book adds to the growing literature that expands and enriches the history of modern architecture by exploring the interrelationships between site and building. Readers of Uncommon Ground who desire to find additional sources for this sort of interpretation will not find citations by Leatherbarrow to other authors currently working in this area.
But, in addition to Frampton, I can name several architects and critics whose articles and books can situate Uncommon Ground in an exciting area of scholarship. Specifically, I am interested in how we look at sites with respect to overlooking—a habitual site analysis practice that contributes in very particular ways to the construction of knowledge of site.
I was familiar with the MIT architecture writing series and as a matter of fact the books by Rajchman were my favourite during my studies.
