Absolute architecture.

The antithesis of #Functionalism, it was proposed as a purposeless architecture by Walter Pichler and Hans #Hollein in the 1960s, the opposite of objectivity (Sachlichkeit). Its forms were to be created by imagination rather than by consideration of need. It was also used to describe #Goff’s investigations of structure and space.
