Confederacy Of Heretics Symposium Roundtable-clip_8165

Subclip

Jeffrey Kipnis continues the discussion of the context of Los Angeles architecture culture circa 1979 by mentioning Reyner Banham’s representation of the city. The panelists respond by describing how the freedom of working a city without an established design intelligentsia encouraged intensive experiment with the process of building, especially with regard to materials and modes of architectural representation. On the other hand, they suspect that young architects today plot the launch of their careers more methodically.

Zvi Hecker Memory Is The Soil Of Architecture-clip_6081

Subclip

Zvi Hecker describes a project for a Jewish cultural center in Duisburg, Germany as the last of the spiral designs. The building extends into the surrounding park, allowing visitors to pass through parts of the building without entering. Hecker wanted his design for the Palmach Museum of History in Tel-Aviv, to ”respect the soil,” and so it left much of the site intact, including the slope of the street and the existing trees.
