Henry N Cobb Hypostyle Gallery Talk-clip_9898

Henry N. Cobb discusses with Eric Owen Moss what he considers as the experimental aspect of his Hypostyle installation, stressing that his array of opaque vertical elements is meant to be very legible and experiential. He describes precedents such as the Great Hall of the Temple of Ammon at Karnak, the Great Mosque at Cordova, the Basilica Cistern at Istanbul, and Robert Maillart’s grain storage warehouse at Altdorf as the framework of knowns within which he devised his experiment. When Moss wonders if the tabletop city of Adolf Loos’s Tribune Tower designs is meant ironically, Cobb responds that the installation of 3 by 8 foot doors is an architectural proposition, while the Loos element is an urban proposition.
