Maya Architecture (Research and Source Works) by George O. Totten



Andrews, George F. Architecture of the Puuc Region and Northern Plains Areas. Vol. 1 of Pyramids and Palaces, Monsters and Masks: The Golden Age of Maya Architecture. The Collected Works of George F. Andrews (3 vols. Lancaster, CA: Labyrinthos, 1995. The collected writings and lecture papers of George Andrews on the architecture and culture of lowland Maya civilization. These are based on detailed, on-site observations, documenting nearly 1000 buildings at 242 sites. The first begins in the sixteenth century and goes on to the middle of the eighteenth century. He writes: although for more than 200 years not one single excavation seeking knowledge took place, a series of often very intelligent descriptions of places, monuments and objects were set down.

The ARCHITECTURE (UN)CERTAINTY LAB is dedicated to challenging architecture's epistemological and design capacities and bring the conversation back into a world of immersive ambiguities. The work that the lab promotes operates outside of subject-object and theory-practice dualities. The ARCHITECTURE (UN)CERTAINTY LAB thus identifies the classroom and seminar room, the sites of historically situated complex critical thinking, as the renewed locus of architectural education for the 21st century

Lectures, seminars and workshops will equip you with a grounding in critical spatial practices and related areas of inquiry.

Maya architecture spans many thousands of years; yet, often the most dramatic and easily recognizable as Maya are the stepped pyramids from the Terminal Pre-classic period and beyond. There are also cave sites that are important to the Maya, like Jolja Cave, the cave site at Naj Tunich, the Candelaria Caves, and the Cave of the Witch. Each book, or codex, consists of a strip, anything up to 13 yards in length and some 6-7 inches high, made of paper, maguey cloth, or deer skin, and folded in zigzag or concertina fashion like a modern map, so that wherever the user opened it he was confronted by two pages.
