Jean Michel Crettaz welcomes Neil Spiller and questions the role of the new, and the future of architecture, science, and technology. Crettaz asks how we investigate systems beyond visual anchor points. He goes on to say that science fiction has exhausted its visual vocabulary, and therefore novel spacial propositions will be informed by cyberspace, emergent technologies, genetics, and molecular and tissue engineering.


Lebbeus Woods Vico Morcote Interview 1998

January 10, 1998 | Video Lecturer:

Lebbeus Woods describes his earliest influences, and reflects how, in retrospect, his nomadic childhood, engineering, and Heinz Von Foester are reflected in his work. He describes his astonishment at the first Archigram publications, noting that through Von Foester he had met Gordon Pask, who worked with Cedric Price. He characterizes his work as an exploration of ideas it is not possible to pursue in conventional practice, stressing architecture’s ethical dimension. Woods calls his drawings guides, presenting “What if …” scenarios, rather than plans to be executed, and–as in the Havana Project–exploring ways of building by accumulation of small gestures. The video was produced by Rob Gardner and Tony Hatto, with Charles Hellwig and Katsumi Moror, as part of a class taught by Luciano Riggolini. Dwayne Oyler provided the research which made this presentation possible.
