        • Definitions and Limitations of Criticism

        Abstract
        Peter Bürger’s article ‘Begriff und Grenzen der Kritik’ provides a meaningful starting point for a discussion on architecture criticism, opening up the object of criticism in its multiple layers in an era in which ‘criticism is infected by a paralysing self-doubt’. Of particular importance is his statement that, even if we agree that the critique of works of art or of architecture operates somewhat autonomously, ‘a certain osmotic process of influence is likely to occur’. The question is not if, but how critics would formulate something of a framework of assessing works of architecture in the broadest sense – interiors, buildings and cities – in a society that is perhaps no longer just agnostic, but to some degree desperate.
