He encourages current students to view this work critically, taking the forms and content not as models but as starting points for new explorations. The three Gehry Prize-winning projects are discussed by their faculty advisors.

Hernan Diaz Alonso contextualizes “Glass House” by Jeffrey Halstead (M.Arch 1) within the diverse range of hybrid projects in this year’s thesis work. He notes the precision and intensity with which Halstead engages with cinematic and architectural images, generating a non-literary narrative.

Elena Manferdini discusses “I Am Out of Focus” by Mustafa Kustur (M.Arch 2) in terms of the shift in thesis preparation from formal issues to a focus on specific critical issues in the discipline–e.g. Kustur’s probing investigation of symbolism, abstraction and politics. Eric Owen Moss concludes by thanking everyone involved with producing this work, and looks forward to new developments next year.

Graduation 2014

Eric Owen Moss welcomes everyone to Graduation 2014, remarking that it marks a propitious moment for SCI-Arc, and the new graduates, in their effort to re-imagine what the future might be.

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti argues that with the help of designers like the new graduates, cities will become the generators of solutions to contemporary problems. Garcetti concludes by offering four words of encouragement:

  1. Be fearless, i.e. dare to dream boldly.
  2. Be humble, i.e. consider all the ways to powerfully benefit cities that are not ego-driven, or monumental–citing the Ise Grand Shrine and CicLAvia.
  3. Learn to listen, which combined with boldness and humility makes for a great leader.
  4. Lead with love–acknowledge that design is about connecting people, for purposes of furthering what Aristotle defined as the purpose of cities: the good life.

Graduating B.Arch student Anthony Morey describes recently looking at his picture on his SCI-Arc i.d., and realizing how radically he has changed and grown in four and a half years. He recalls one of his first instructors, Eric Kahn, inspiring students to become the authors of their own stories, and not to be afraid of getting lost.
