Stan Allen Before And After Landscape Urbanism

March 4, 2009 | Video Lecturer:
Introduction by:

Stan Allen frames his lecture at SCI-Arc as a reappraisal of what was valuable about Landscape Urbanism, and its potential deficiencies. Allen considers the working variables in Landscape Urbanism with an attention to process and change. Through the presentation of several projects he shows how these variables informed his urban designs. These projects include the Taichung Gateway, the Yan-Ping Waterfront, and Gwanggyo Lakeside Park. He follows his discussion on Landscape Urbanism with a shift to smaller scale architectural projects including the Sagaponac House, Salim Publishing House, and Chosen Children Village Chapel.

Introduction by:

Stan Allen discusses the driving concepts behind his recent publication Points and Lines. These points and lines together describe systems and networks that contain intermediate zones and interstitial spaces that are just as important as the network itself. He presents field conditions, infrastructural
urbanism, and contextual tactics as the three major issues in his work. He is also interested in the language of detailing and construction that is self evident. He is interested in a tactical notion of the field as exemplified by post-minimalist art, as opposed to the serial repetition of minimalist art. He discusses his National Diet Library in Kansai, the Logistical Activity Zone for the port of Barcelona, an extension of the Museo del Prado in Madrid, renovation and addition to a house by Marcel Breuer and other houses.

Allen’s interest lies in a tactical notion of the field as seen in examples of modern art. Infrastructural urbanism is a way of dealing with all of the networks and systems that enable a building to exist rather than simply looking at the building itself. Contextual tactics also try to go beyond montages and collages, looking for more interesting and sophisticated ways to create difference within the new field of the modern city.
