Jennifer Siegal Generation Mobile The Death Of Distance

November 19, 2008 |
Introduction by:

Jennifer Siegal is a SCI-Arc graduate, and the founder and principal of the Office of Mobile Design (OMD). Siegal is interested in the “environmental consequences of auto-mobility,” and in “using design to affect social mobility.” Her ideas of mobile architecture are not confined to portability but also take on the implications of time and place. Through the presentation of her work she discusses the principles that drive OMB such as sustainability, research, and mass-customization.

October 20, 2004 | Video Lecturer:
Introduction by:

Robert Mangurian introduces Raimund Abraham discussing Abraham’s history and accomplishments while emphasizing Abraham’s drawing. Abraham reflects on drawing and argues that ultimately architecture can be made with only a pencil, paper, and a desire to make architecture.

James Turrell

March 27, 2002 | Video Lecturer:
Introduction by: ,

James Turrell is an artist whose primary concern is light, space, and visual perception. Turrell discusses the psychology of perception, and how he uses light to inhabit space giving light a sensory experience akin to touch or taste. Through analysis of visual phenomenon he creates art that often uses architecture not as a medium but rather as a vessel through which his art is made manifest. Turrell presents numerous projects that range from small-scale installations to an immense earthwork project at Roden Crater in Arizona.

Lars Lerup

October 22, 1997 | Video Lecturer:
Introduction by:

Lars Lerup discusses the transformation of urban culture. Specifically the shift from city life being based on the stability of buildings to being based on the movement of traffic. Lerup discusses “stims,” i.e. stimulating focal elements in the environment, and the social factors that hinder architecture. Calling for an age of integration, Lerup shows work his office has been doing over the last few years.

Peter Zumthor

September 12, 1997 | Video Lecturer:
Introduction by:

Introduced by Robert Magurian, Peter Zumthor discusses the experience of space through building and materials. The cultural importance of elemental materials such as stone and wood, “madeira (wood), madre, material.” Peter Zumthor reflects on his own practice and his quest for design which relies on recalling/remembering the experience of spaces, places and of dwelling through materials, sounds, light, and shadow. He also mentions ideas regarding the harmony between the work of nature and the work of man.

Peter Fend The City Is An Animal

October 26, 1994 | Video Lecturer:
Introduction by:

Peter Fend begins by pointing out the large collages of maps, videos, books, drawings and other media he will be using to discuss his Ocean Earth Development Corporation. After mentioning Joseph Beuys as a model of his art and ecological activist activities, Fend cites Leon Battista Alberti on the importance of the city, Antonio Sant’Elia and Tommaso Marinetti on the use of the ocean as an energy source, and Vincent Scully’s argument that the modern nation-state of France derived from architectural forms of the garden and fortress. Fend presents an image of Robert Smithson’s “Spiral Jetty,” and proposes that not only is it possible to create structures out of manipulating the landscape, but that art should invent ways to repair damaged environments. At the same time, Fend acknowledges throughout his talk that powerful political, economic and technological interests actively oppose his ideas, and work to silence him. Fend discusses his analysis of the Persian Gulf. He argues that water not oil will ultimately be the big issue in the Middle East. He discusses one of his systems for generating energy through gigantic oceanic forests of algae. Fend shows satellite images of Haiti, discusses a radical renovation of Duisberg, and shows more projects for returning desserts to “pre-Neolithic conditions.” Fend discusses his proposed intervention into the Three Gorges Dam, and a project in Montenegro. Fend reviews earlier work with tensile structures and cantilevered systems.
