Introduction by: ,

Zhang Liang Gao discusses Chinese architecture in terms of “it’s form, color, its space, and its design idea.” He stresses the visual alignment of buildings throughout China and discusses buildings having a “background” and “foreground.” He highlights the stilt houses in the River Valley of Central China and explains their popularity as a defense against annual flooding. Gao talks about stilt and elevated houses in other parts of the world.

Mark McCollough talks about the newest developments in 3D scanning, citing the body scanning employed by the movie industry. McCollough demonstrates live how the CNC milling software works. Students approach the machine to watch it produce the prototype. He describes the process in detail, mentioning STL and IGS files, nurbs surfaces, vector tool paths, and the difference between 3- and 5-axis milling machines. SCI-Arc faculty and students are very impressed and ask McCollough to come back to SCI-Arc to do a workshop. They also discuss the cost of the software and machines.


Robert Mangurian Little Bo Peep Has Lost Her Sheep Part One

After being introduced, Robert Mangurian presents a brief allegorical performance, in which he examines some cardboard, wood and metal architectural junk displayed next to the podium, eventually sweeping it offstage with a big broom. Mangurian argues that industrialized production, industrialized communications, and computing have led to over-complicated architectural designs and theoretical views. Using historic, contemporary and his own work, Mangurian proposes focusing on issues such as, alignment, approach, materials, and space can contribute towards an architectural language of simplicity and coherence. This video ends abruptly, and continues in Part Two.
