Gunnar Birkerts Objective Architecture-clip_5119

Subclip

Gunnar Birkerts begins his lecture by describing his personal history in both art and architecture, attributing his sensibility to “the modern masters.” Birkerts combines the personal, the theoretical and the scientific to outline his major criteria. He argues that architecture can be purely objective, and that its main purpose is to promote a direction or position.
