Architects and Mimetic Rivalry.
Girard, Rene and Leon Krier.
Architects and Mimetic Rivalry.
Samir Younes, associate professor of architecture at Notre Dame, serves as editor of a series of essays by Rene Girard, professor emeritus at Stanford University; Leon Krier, architect, urbanist, and 2003 Driehaus Prize laureate; Kent Bloomer, adjunct professor of architecture at Yale University, and Younes. They argue that architectural identities are shaped by imitating preferred architectural forms-and by imitating the identities of their creators. The term "mimetic rivalry," coined by Girard, occurs as a result of competition for what is commonly shared and desired. Architects often dismiss the idea, explaining their rivalry as a result of personal and ideological differences, unaware that the desire to imitate a master becomes the desire to obtain the same forms, the same status. For the first time in architectural literature, Architects and Mimetic Rivalry introduces and explains mimetic rivalry, and discusses the effects of this broad and unrecognized phenomenon on architects and architecture of today.
