This study examines the influence of perspective on architecture,
highlighting how critical historical changes in the representation
and perception of space continue to inform the way architects
design. Since its earliest developments, perspective was conceived
as an exemplary form of representation that served as an ideal
model of how everyday existence could be measured and ultimately
judged. Temple argues that underlying the symbolic and
epistemological meanings of perspective there prevails a deeply
embedded redemptive view of the world that is deemed perfectible.
Temple explores this idea through a genealogical investigation of
the cultural and philosophical contexts of perspective throughout
history, highlighting how these developments influenced
architectural thought. This broad historical enquiry is accompanied
by a series of case-studies of modern or contemporary buildings,
each demonstrating a particular affinity with the accompanying
historical model of perspective.
