Jesse Reiser characterizes his O14 Tower in Dubai as an inversion of Frank Lloyd Wright’s St. Marks Tower. The concept for the project pushes the structure and columns to the outside and fuses them to create the an outer shell structure. The separation of the shell from the inner tower creates a stack effect, while the opening pattern subverts perception of scale and the movement of force lines.

Subclip

Claude Parent lectures in French, and an interpreter provides an English translation. Parent illustrates his ideas by drawing on paper attached to the wall. Parent stresses the importance of movement in architecture, evoking the ocean and waves as a image of what he is interested in architecture. He calls himself a magician of architecture, and claims he designs illusions. Parent argues that Frank Lloyd Wright and Erich Mendelsohn were the first architects to incorporate the illusion of movement in
architecture.

Joe Day discusses how in the 1700s, prison builders abandoned the idea that prisons are places of rehabilitation and focused on incarcerating as many people as possible with as few guards as possible. After discussing John Soane’s Dulwich Museum, George Dance’s Newgate Prison and ?tienne-Louis Boull?e’s Palace of Justice, Day compares Frank Lloyd Wright’s Guggenheim Museum and Jeremy Bentham’s Penopticon prison design. The Penopticon was the first prison design to go beyond storage and services, focusing on how inmates could be watched from a single point of supervision. The Penopticon prisoner is left at the mercy of the guard whom they cannot see, while the Guggenheim has no place from which one can view the entire interior space.

Subclip

Steven Holl, introduced by Michael Rotondi, describes a church in the middle of Norway as a metaphor for the overarching theme of his lecture. Holl describes his interest in tying form, concept, and site into a cohesive project that investigates phenomenological effects of design. He discusses Frank Lloyd Wright’s Johnson Wax Building and how the material finishes evoke ethereal associations.


Paffard Keatinge Clay In Defense Of Offense

Paffard Keatinge-Clay presents several projects, conducts an extensive discussion segment. He discusses his experiences working and studying with Le Corbusier, Frank Lloyd Wright, and Mies van der Rohe. He argues that architecture functions within a continuum of cultural and historical evolution akin to chemical and biological shifts in complexity. He stresses social, material and formal issues in all his work, regardless of type, client, or budget. The last clip is the beginning of Frank Dimster’s lecture of October 31, 1979, which is available on a separate video.

Keatinge-Clay pauses his slide presentation to share some of views and experiences. He describes working and studying with Frank Lloyd Wright. Wright’s dialogue between building and landscape influenced him as well as architects like Le Corbusier and Mies van der Rohe. Keatinge-Clay paints and sculpts, and strives to integrate these disciplines into architecture. He sees his work, and architecture in general, as part of a stream of culture and history.
