John Shannon Hendrix (born 1959) is an architectural historian and philosopher who has written and lectured extensively on the subjects of architecture, art, philosophy, aesthetics, psychoanalysis, science, culture and history. Much of his work focuses on connections among those topics, such as interactions of vision, perception, and sensation with the arts and architecture, the relationships between psychoanalysis and architecture, physical sciences and architecture, and philosophy and architecture. His career focuses on research and writing about "mostly European precedents in architecture and philosophy, for the purpose of suggesting alternatives to the practice of architecture and philosophy at the beginning of the twenty-first century."
Hendrix's research and theoretical focus is directed toward developing modern alternatives to conventional practice of architecture and philosophy. Proposing approaches to contemporary practice of art and architecture, his teachings and writings relate interdisciplinary disciplines including aesthetics, cosmology, philosophy, and psychoanalysis.
Connecting concepts of justice with the symbolic nature of architecture, Hendrix has analyzed how medieval cathedrals' use of light provide symbolism of justice.
Developing new directions in urban planning based on psychoanalytic theory, Hendrix is a member of an international research group, based at Oxford Brookes University, designated "Architecture on the Couch: Psychoanalysis and the Environment."
To explore interdependencies among ancient and medieval philosophies and medieval architecture, Hendrix has been scheduled as a keynote speaker at the 2018 Fundamental Structures conference at Durham University.
