Vicente Guallart The Self Sufficent City

Vicente Guallart argues that the global financial collapse of 2007 created an opportunity to rethink Barcelona’s future. He proposes a self-sufficient city made of “productive neighborhoods at human speed, inside a hyper-connected metropolis.” He discusses projects to reintroduce nature into the city, and to integrate history into contemporary life, and efforts to upgrade the city’s information infrastructure hardware. Guallart describes current projects to cultivate self-sufficient neighborhoods, including new centers for digital fabrication, and a series of prototype solar houses.

Thom Mayne, Jeffrey Kipnis, Eric Owen Moss Architecture And Politics

October 25, 2011 | Video Lecturer:
Introduction by:

Jeffrey Kipnis leads a discussion between Thom Mayne and Eric Owen Moss regarding their views on architecture’s relationship with politicsKipnis opens up the discussion with the premise that throughout history, architecture has primarily served people in power. Responding to Kipnis. Mayne and Eric Owen Moss debate their role as architects within the political realm. Mayne discusses his views on the nature of the city and t. he architect’s contribution to public life. Kipnis argues that Moss is individualistic and idealistic as a formalist, while Mayne is more pragmatic and idealistic as an urbanist. Kipnis asserts that multiple truths are valid, while Moss is more interested in the exception, rather than the rule, as the only truth architecture can impart to the public. Kipnis and Mayne discuss school projects as political projects. The discussion concludes with a Q&A Session, covering China, Russia, totalitarianism, social inequality, typography, e.e. cummings, Mark Z. Danielewski’s “House of Leaves,” Rem Koolhaas, and meaning and symbolism in architecture.

Mohamed Sharif Recent Work

March 18, 2011 | Video Lecturer:
Introduction by:

Mohamed Sharif reviews his Miesien education in Scotland, his un-Miesien Ben Nicholson studio at IIT as an exchange student, and his investment in pattern making and pattern scrutiny. Sharif presents three of his projects done at the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD): an architecture lecture hall, a library adaptation, and the Inside Jobsexhibition. He presents four projects for Santa Monica. The first, Liquid Sky, is a public space stemming from his obsession with the conical hourglass. The last three, forwardneverstraight, Treemedia, and Santa Monica Orthodontics express moments when a building you are looking at winks back at you.
