Archan Boonyanan


Originally written in the spring of 1955 by Colin
Rowe, an architect and Robert Slutzky, a painter as
the two members of Texas Rangers considered the
avant-garde movement in 1950s American architecture
at the University of Texas, Austin, the fully named article
“Transparency: Literal and Phenomenal” was finally
published in ‘’Perspecta 8’’, the Yale Architectural
Journal in 1964 after a long delay. As mentioned in
Preface by professor Bernhard Hoesli of the Swiss
Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) in Zurich, one
of the three significant contributions of Rowe and
Slutzky’s essay is an abstract of insights and methods
that can be concluded as a new transferable knowledge
or a theory from the studies of existing empirical works.
