Michael Kubo discusses the distribution and reception of significant architectural publications. He presents the results of a survey he conducted among architectural professionals, academics and students. He presents diagrams demonstrating the recent trend to a very small number of texts rating as significant by everybody, and a great many texts cited as important by only a handful of people.

Andrew Holder documents a selection of five recent projects completed by his office. The first is an outdoor movie screen. He reviews the selection and development of the structural system and discusses the relationship of vehicle with the ground plane. Holder describes “Loftway,” a small real estate office in downtown Los Angeles, as inspired by the topology of the Sperry Topsider shoe. The third project re-examines the use of diagramming techniques in a series of retail stores for Surefoot. Holder reviews a competition for a project for sustainability and storm water remediation. He concludes with a residential project titled “Villa Down the Rabbit Hole,” This project takes an existing house with an open floor plan and investigates the proliferation of structural consequences under static loads.

Introduction by:

Courtnay Bauer reviews the professional and academic
career of Andrew Holder. Holder presents a multi-part polemic on the current state of architectural practice, documenting the causes of anxiety in the profession. Holder then introduces the concept of “fakeness,” with which he attempts to subvert the conventional value system. Holder documents a selection of five recent projects completed by his office, touching on issues of diagramming, form, sustainability, and structure.

Subclip

Steven Holl ends by discussing diagrams, Colin Rowe, and the differences between classical, modern, and Twenty-first century architectures. He stresses his desire to discover and manipulate the irreducible elements that give architecture power. He ends his lecture by answering questions about his ideas of compression and layering elements. Holl also talks about his drawing technique and how it influences his architectural design.

Jeffery Kipnis ends his lecture by discussing Mood River, an exhibit of contemporary product design at the Wexner Center that he co-curated with Annetta Massie. Kipnis explains the circulation concept while describing the installations that comprised the exhibit. Kipnis describes several pieces from the exhibit, describing their part-to-whole relationships, as well as their use of materials. Lastly, he takes a few questions about emergent behaviors and the relationship of social life to personal psychology.


Panel Discussion Toward A New Paradigm

Karl Chu, Jeffrey Kipnis and the UN Studio founders Ben van Berkel and Caroline Bos discuss with moderator Michael Speaks the emerging trend toward algorithmic and diagrammatic design techniques. The panel argues that emergent properties, computation techniques, and information diagraming make it possible for architecture to free itself from representational figures, thus creating an architecture in line with a shifting society. After individual presentations from the panelists, the floor is opened up to a question and answer session, in which the group further describe the reasons for their viewpoints.

Subclip

Ben van Berkel discusses his design methodologies as a way of rethinking organizational structure augmented by dense information. Using UN Studio projects, Berkel describes how mapping information created hybrid concepts that led to new space and architecture. Berkel advocates diagraming to grasp shifting sentiments and technological advances, and express them as synchronized unities in his architecture.
