Has the role of the architectural critic disappeared for good, or has it adapted to contemporary pressures, urgencies, and fashions, thus embodying all their contradictions? What is the role of criticism today? Should it record the current situation or psychoanalyze and dissect the critiqued object and then transfigure it? Several approaches to criticism – which correspond to different ways of looking at architecture – are discussed.
