Christian Norberg Schulz

Christian Norberg-Schulz discusses the idea of meaning in architecture, monumentality, and the need to recover place in terms of figurative architecture. He discusses public space, form, and expression, illustrating his points with images of churches. Norberg-Schulz characterizes all the images and examples he shows as expressions of our human situation between earth
and sky. He discusses architectural semiotics, and references the image-, symbol-, and sign-rich designs of Bernini and Boull?e.

Aldo Van Eyck

The lecture and two panel discussions documented in this video did not take place at SCI-Arc. Aldo van Eyck presents a selection of his work, showing each project briefly and using each to explain a particular idea about his work. He talks about a Catholic Church project in The Hague where he creates a high space on a small site with a small budget. His 1959 orphanage in Amsterdam deals with how to articulate a large flat roof, while another church project is about dematerializing walls. Showing the columns of his European Space Agency project, van Eyck stresses the importance of creating your own solutions. His presentation is followed by a panel discussion including Christian Norberg-Schulz. This is followed by another, different, panel discussion with Norberg-Schulz on urban semiotics.
