Abstract

Brought on by the Industrial Revolution, the breakthrough of centralized heating in its different versions (air, steam, or water) gave rise to a genuine revolution in architecture: the passage from heterothermia (space organized in a gradient around a single thermal focus) to homothermia (the isotropic space served by split thermal foci). This article discusses that revolution through three complementary analyses: of the origins of centralized heating systems; of the technical, social, and symbolic crises produced by the implantation of those systems in 19th-century spaces; and of the strategies that architects of the period used to accommodate the new machinery.
