Jeffrey Kipnis & Hernan Diaz Alonso

Jeffrey Kipnis begins the eighth and final Fecundity of a Mossy Climate conversation by arguing that even though architecture has traditionally been focused on sobriety and rectitude, it can reflect other aspects of human experience. He discusses some projects by Hernan Diaz Alonso, stressing the use of animation as a design tool. Diaz Alonso and Kipnis discuss horror, ephemerality and impermanence as positive values, working within given problems, and digital versus filmic sensibilities. Diaz Alonso and Kipnis respond to comments from the audience, touching on temporality, nostaligia and working. They respond to Eric Owen Moss’s question about buildings that are virtual and buildings that exist in reality.

Jeffrey Kipnis Devyn Weiser Peter Testa & Greg Lynn

April 1, 2015 | Video Lecturer:

Jeffrey Kipnis starts the sixth of the Fecundity of a Mossy Climate conversations by differentiating Devyn Weiser and Peter Testa’s research-based practice from the culturally-based practices of the previous Mossy Climate participants. In a survey of Testa and Weiser’s work, Kipnis stresses how of their research on carbon fiber and robots informs their design sensibility. Greg Lynn praises Testa and Weiser’s work for not being focused on optimizing the properties of new materials, but on architecture. Kipnis, Lynn, Weiser and Testa discuss the dialog between material research and design, different ways of being influenced by materials, and the interaction of materials and design.

Jeffrey Kipnis & Eric Owen Moss Look You Got It All Wrong 2

Jeffrey Kipnis begins the second session of the seminar with Eric Owen Moss with images of the significance of construction details. Kipnis then introduces this session’s topic, as finding a personal ethos in relation to one’s own architectural practice. Eric Owen Moss presents the horse from the movie The Wind as an image of abstract forces embodied in a concrete form. He argues the value of getting away from what’s known in favor of exploring possibilities. Kipnis and Moss discuss the role of tradition, and personal and public motives in architecture, and pursuing practice critically.
