Introduction by:

Mehrdad Yazdani, a former design principle and a vice-president with Ellerbe Becket, describes the work of his firm. He prefaces his talk by saying that when he was in school in the 1980s, there were new definitions of “isms” coming out weekly, however he is more interested in constructed architecture. He discusses his design for a Red Line Metro Station in Los Angeles, the site and its relation to topography and surface, and his intention to create an urban space. Yazdani also shows two projects for the Los Angeles Department of Water & Power, and the design of a house for himself and his wife, a fashion designer reflecting her forms and patterns. He discusses various corporate projects from Ellerbe Becket during the 1980s. Yazdani presents current projects such as clubhouse in Oman and a movie theatre at the Universal City – City Walk.

Mehrdad Yazdani highlights
the design of a house for himself and his wife, a fashion designer. He explains how he wanted to address architecture and fashion. He made collages of the architectural design, incorporating patterns his wife was designing for the body. The Yazdanis’ also designed furniture for the house the same way. He discusses the design of a hillside residence, which he describes as “two sliding vertical masses…on a portion of the site.” The house has a glass foyer, with the master bedroom on the second floor. Yazdani shows various corporate projects from Ellerbe Becket during the 1980s. For a large corporate building in Dallas, he mentions using blue glass, stainless steel and clear glass. For a tower project he talks about using stainless steel with silver-tinted glass on the exterior. Yazdani gives examples of buildings he calls “the autonomous object,” including a 300-bed hospital in Seoul, Korea with what he calls a “sky garden,” a way “to see through the building to the sky.” He also describes a prototype for an “interactive entertainment building,” with an “electronic town square.”
