UEDA Tomomasa

Kyoto Institute of Technology
The thesis of Kyoto Institute of Technology. In the thesis I paid attention to 60's Superstudio and 80's Ettore Sottsass as 2 major ideologues and discuss how design theories of the ages were changed. Although additional, it was important work to detach the notion of bricolage from the bricolage of Levi-Strauss who was a rigid and static Structuralist. At that time, 'bricolage' was of Levi-Strauss' which elements should be parts of structures. To discuss the age of postmodern, elements should run away from structures.
