Abstract


The objective of this article is to emphasize the breaking points in critical architectural theory which leaded to our today’s hotly debated and unstable environment, and discuss new possible solutions, and thoughts started from 90’s. The ongoing capitalist system, the pragmatic approaches don’t leave space for utopias or representations. There is a shift from the critical architectural theory to new stages which have their roots from high technology, ecology, sustainability, daily life etc. Ethnical, political issues and societal impacts have a great power on this system. As the critical theory once achieved, today’s chaotic environment will find its way inside this fuzziness.
