Charles Jencks New Japanese Architecture-clip_2199

Charles Jencks discusses univalent elements and multivalent elements in design, a key issue with postmodernism. Using the Chicago Civic Center and Mies’s IIT campus, Jencks compares and contrasts modernism with the emerging architecture of designers like Michael Graves and Ricardo Bofill, employing multifunctional elements and signifiers. He also goes in depth about IIT’s corner design and what it means to design an open or closed corner.
