ARCHITECTOLOGY®, the term

‘…architectology® should include critical theory and architectural criticism within as much as the…constituents of architecture – from the science of materials, construction and structural calculus to history, social studies, theory or composition…This way architecture could indulge to proudly show its internal equilibrium between episteme, techné and poiesis…’

Concha Diez-Pastor (2012), ‘Architectology®: architectural knowledge construction’, SAJAH vol. 27, nr 1, 2012: 1-8.

Architectology® is the scholarly research and scientific study of the composition, theory and history of architecture, from the scope of architecture as total art and discipline; in this sense there is no division of it in parts that are studied and researched separately, as all of them – science of materials, construction, structural calculus, drawing, drafting, theory, composition etcetera – need to remain within architecture as a whole.
