Charles Jencks New Japanese Architecture-clip_2198

Charles Jencks begins a different lecture that deals with signs, codes, and language as a way of conceiving and communicating architecture. He explains how modern architecture can be viewed as a language that failed to communicate, resulting in its demise. Using Minoru Yamasaki’s Pruitt-Igoe development in St. Louis, Jencks describes systems and codes that reveal themselves to the user as being based on the user’s past associations with particular architectural elements.
