GUERRI, Claudio F.. Languages, designs and architecture. Cuad. Fac. Humanid. Cienc. Soc., Univ. Nac. Jujuy [online]. 2001, n.17, pp.211-250. ISSN 1668-8104.

The rapid transposition of categories coming from linguistics and literary theory to the analyses of other disciplines, was one of the principal reasons the semiologic project was questioned. As for architecture, the principal objection lay in this preeminence attributed to the specific problems of the verbal language. This distorted the place that the traditional graphic languages -Perspective and Monge- had had through out history, as for their own instruments to give an account of the architectonic practice. So as to achieve an agreement on certain categories of the architectural, the question of its specifity rises and its necessity to identify a constant element: architectonicity. Which could be defined, a priori, as a particular way of formal transformation of the habitable constructed-space. The distinct trait but - subject to the ups and downs of esthetics of the epoch and the pragmatic perspective authorized in each period. Thus, Architecture will be that which can be said by means of a language socially accepted, either verbal or graphic. Finally, and to be able to mention the concept of Architectonicity linked to a graphic-visual no-verbal system the theoric instrumental need of the graphic language is considered.
