Dolores Hayden

Dolores Hayden begins by describing the planning and construction of Vanport, Oregon in ten months, providing government-subsidized housing, childcare and hot meals for 40,000 racially-diverse defense industry workers, many of them (temporarily) single working moms. Despite this precedent, post-war policy insured that America’s dominant housing type would be the single family home, accommodating a working father, homemaker mother, and kids. Hayden describes how her search for an architecture at the GSD in the 1960s and 1970s based on equality and public participation led to the discovery of a forgotten heritage of revisions of domestic life by pioneers of “material feminism,” including Melusina Fay Pierce, Mary Livermore, Ellen Swallow Richards, Alice Constance Austin, and Sven Markelius and Alva Myrdal. Hayden argues that the single family home developments encouraged by the Federal Housing Administration and other government policies after World War II were explicitly racist, sexist, and ideologically compromised. Though Hayden considers most alternatives to suburbia proposed problematic, she notes four conspicuous successes: the Tingg?rden cohousing development in Denmark, Hubertus house for single mothers, and two conversions of 19th century Massachusetts houses into homes for seniors with shared facilities–one by Gwen R?n? and another by Barry Korobkin. Hayden concludes with a review of current challenges, stressing efforts by women to reclaim public space.

Peter Calthorpe

Peter Calthorpe describes the impact of Buckminister Fuller’s technological optimism, and the sharp reaction against it in the later 1970s. He describes several projects in detail, including a hand-built house in Maine, a plan to transform Hamilton Air Force Base into a Solar Village, a pedestrian-oriented community in Chino Hills, the Bateson State Office Building, and two mixed-use and housing development in Sacramento. [PLEASE NOTE: from 56:27 to 57:10 there is no image or audio.] Calthorpe responds to audience comments regarding power generation, contextualism, appropriate technology, and Postmodern architecture as an attempt to appropriate some of entertainment’s power and resources.
