Wolf Prix What’s the Difference Number One-clip_4878

Subclip

Prix concludes with several projects of drastically differing scales. He addresses the integration of monumentality and dynamism. In principle he defends working in autocratic political contexts today as analogous to working for the Catholic Church in the past, but personally refuses to work on projects that conform to autocratic ideals. Prix discusses materials and fabrication, showing examples
of ship building technologies combined with forms made from hand bent reeds.

Introduction by:

David Erdman was the principal of Servo in Los Angeles before establishing davidclovers with Clover Lee. Erdman discusses his projects in terms of mass production and mass media. Mass production is used here to indicate a “series of combined methods that explore new configurations of mass.” Mass media is understood as a combination of mass in the architectural sense, and media in the sense of”fluid, transitory, ephemeral, and immaterial.”

Ponce de Leon recalls her time teaching at SCI-Arc in 2002. She revisits one of her firms earlier projects, a 1996 commission by MOMA, New York for an installation utilizing laser-cut steel panels. She documents the project from the conceptual stage, through fabrication and construction. She presents a house in New England. Ponce de Leon describes the leveraging of digital technology and its role in physical production as well as the manipulation of unconventional materials. She documents her exploration of visual connections, site issues, and other research involved in the development of a skin system for a soccer stadium in St. Paul, Minnesota.
