In one of his most celebrated lectures at Harvard University, the political theorist, Robert Mangabeira Ungers identified seven different categories of formalism in legal theory. Through an intricate and expansive process of classification involving different ideological, philosophical and cultural assumptions, Ungers defines in detail an entire repertoire of form in which one could position him or herself in. Surprisingly, the fact that the discipline of architecture, one long involved in the manipulation of form, still remains in an overly simplistic and often-despised realm of formalism is rather unsettling.
