Jeffrey Kipnis & Eric Owen Moss Look You Got It All Wrong 2

Jeffrey Kipnis begins the second session of the seminar with Eric Owen Moss with images of the significance of construction details. Kipnis then introduces this session’s topic, as finding a personal ethos in relation to one’s own architectural practice. Eric Owen Moss presents the horse from the movie The Wind as an image of abstract forces embodied in a concrete form. He argues the value of getting away from what’s known in favor of exploring possibilities. Kipnis and Moss discuss the role of tradition, and personal and public motives in architecture, and pursuing practice critically.

Jeffrey Kipnis and Eric Owen Moss discuss the role of tradition in James Joyce, Immanuel Velikovsky, and personal and public motives in architecture. Kipnis maintains that architecture’s fundamental role is to create new ways of being in the world. Moss doubts his personal history as a reader provides a useful model, arguing that a person finds what they need if they look for it. Pursuing practice critically is not for everyone, and creates conflicts, but “if you need to do it, you find a way to do it.”
