Thom Mayne And Michael Rotondi Of Morphosis-clip_2246

Subclip

Thom Mayne quotes Colin Rowe from the Five Architects catalog regarding the dual vision of architects as visionaries and victims of circumstance. He mentions the responsive systems approach of Christopher Alexander and Ralph Knowles as examples of what Morphosis is not doing. Michael Rotondi describes the five major interests he and Mayne share: program, environment, technology, structure, and communication, or “the architectural language of project.” The audio is good but the image during this clip is very bad.
