Charles Jencks New British Architecture-clip_1698

Charles Jencks discusses the evolutionary process of Alison and Peter Smithson and their interest in topographical form. He points out how Brutalism included a return to earlier “Townscape” ideals. This leads to a discussion of the work of James Stirling. Jencks discusses Stirling’s ability to use distance and form to create illusions and circulation resulting in an extremely expressionistic style. Using projects like the Leicester Engineering building and Olivetti Training Center, Jencks describes Stirling’s style, ambitions, and “demise.”
