From Ownership to authorship A Historical perspective

Antoine Picon

Abstract

Since the notion of copyright first arose in the Renaissance era, the perception and reality of architects' roles has dramatically altered. Guest‐Editor Antoine Picon traces the evolution from lone creative genius to today's ‘star architects’, employing hundreds of designers. Is the concept of authorship still relevant in this new context? Or has the emphasis shifted to ownership, whether of building designs or of the software or templates used to produce them?
