Abstract

This paper discusses how reading is central to the architectural practice and how it carries an immense potential for design method, it is further argued that an act of reading is important to be introduced and learned in the architectural education institution within which students learn and develop various design methods. Accordingly, to this importance, this paper proposes a discussion toward various examinations of reading of various types of text. Stressing the discussion toward the conception of reception, interpretation, and representation, this paper aims to disclose the potential of the textual reading for design development by dismantling a range of exploratory reading acts, from literal act of reading to a developed act of reading, each of which positioned text as an event rather than an object. Each of the acts of reading ex Amined in the study takes a role as a process of creative analysis and interpretation which results in a representation of received knowledge.
