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).

Hitoshi Abe Len Tic U Lar Is Gallery Talk With Eric Owen Moss

Hitoshi Abe talks with Eric Owen Moss about his SCI-Arc Gallery installation, characterizing it as a 1:7 scale model of a proposed roof covering the Isamu Noguchi plaza at the Japanese American Cultural & Community Center in Little Tokyo. It derives from atmospheric conditions above the plaza, and is “lens shaped” in the sense of lenticular clouds. Topics include the difference between a model and an installation, Metabolism, reflective surfaces, and modifying existing structures.

The panelist participated in a competition for a new campus for the Vienna University of Economics and Business. Vidler talks with the panelists about architectural dreams, language and perception, and the influence of location. Drawing a connection between Los Angeles and Vienna, Thom Mayne states that ideas and dialogue can make places, “placeless.”
