December 1, 2014 | Video Lecturer:
Introduction by:

Sou Fujimoto describes the shock of going to college in urban Tokyo, after growing up in rural Hokkaido as the start of his investigation of architecture mimicking the natural. He discusses his work, including the Serpentine Gallery Pavilion, NA House, the unbuilt Souk Mirage project, a transparent public toilet for Ichihara, the N House, the Musashino Art University Museum & Library, and a tower block for Montpellier.

Herwig Baumgartner & Scott Uriu Familiar And The Uncanny

November 19, 2014 | Video Lecturer: ,
Introduction by:

Herwig Baumgartner and Scott Uriu of B+U discuss their work in terms of three different interests. They review a Condo Tower in Lima and the 2014 SCI-Arc Gallery installation in terms of Apertures, i.e. the aperture frame, the aperture as autonomous object, and the responsive aperture. Under the category of Edges, they describe several projects, including the OTT Winery, the Frank/Kim house, and a mixed-use development in Downey. They discuss an urban plan for Milan, the Coral Lamp, a soccer stadium complex for Rio, and other projects as Multiples, aggregations of similar objects. They conclude by reviewing three current projects: a chair, a house, and a transit center.

Bernard Tschumi Concept & Notation

November 10, 2014 | Video Lecturer:
Introduction by:

Bernard Tschumi describes how his book book Architecture Concepts (2012), prompted aproposal of a retrospective exhibition at the Pompidou, which in turn prompted a reconsideration of his work as a whole. After describing stages of the conceptualization, design and implementation of the exhibit, he reviews his work under five themes: Space and event, Program and juxtaposition, Vectors and envelopes, Context/Concept/Content, and Form/Concept.

Florencia Pita & Jackilin Bloom Colorforming

November 5, 2014 | Video Lecturer:
Introduction by:

Florencia Pita and Jackilin Bloom characterize their work in terms of a synthesis of color and form, in which the color is innate to the project and process, not personal taste. They review installations (Pulse Tendril Formations, Alice, Cronopios), large infrastructure projects (Los Angeles Central Station, Keelung Port Terminal), parks for Chengdu and San Francisco, and a proposal for P.S. 1 which exemplifies their interest in color, printing and 2.5-D form.

Russell Thomsen & Eric Owen Moss Thinking The Future Of Auschwitz

Russell Thomsen and Eric Owen Moss discuss the historical, ethical and political issues behind Thomsen’s proposal, with Eric Kahn, for Auschwitz. Thomsen characterizes it as temporarily “blanking” the site, making it inaccessible and invisible. Moss raises the question of appropriate or inappropriate uses, citing Peter Eisenman’s Holocaust memorial in Berlin.

Hitoshi Abe Informality

October 29, 2014 | Video Lecturer:
Introduction by:

Hitoshi Abe describes his interest in designing informality: places that accomodate multiple functions flexibly and encourage individual, physical responses. He argues that this non-specific, non-coercive informal architecture is often realized in corridors, and uses this theme to review his own work, from the Miyagi Stadium (2000), to the renovation of the 3M headquarters in Minnesota (2013).

ACADIA Conference Panel At SCI-Arc Design Aesthetics in the Digital Age

Greg Otto opens the Association for Computer Aided Design in Architecture (ACADIA)’s panel discussion of the current state of design and design tools. Marcelyn Gow discusses the disconnect between exacting processes and illegible outcomes. Tom Wiscombe argues for mystery, autonomy, critically breaking or misusing tools,  and the exploration of architecture’s capacities. Alvin Huang discusses his work in terms of an exploratory practice focused on designing with technology. Roland Snooks discusses his explorations as a way of undermining the discrete reading of architectural elements. The panelists respond to a question posed by Greg Otto on digital tools and architectural fundamentals. The panelists respond to audience comments on issues that remain relevant or arise as new problems.
