Charles Gwathemy

January 1, 1977 | Video Lecturer:

Charles Gwathemy describes the intentions and desires behind his architectural projects. He talks about his relationship with the “New York Five,” their differences, and the difference between reality and how they are portrayed in the media. While presenting six completed projects, Gwathemy explains his methology, and how he deals with construction and client problems. The last clip is not part of Charles Gwathemy’s lecture. Three men debate ways to expand low-cost housing. Some maintain that the problem is the costly inefficiency of contemporary construction, which could be relieved by streamlined, component techniques.

He describes his sensibility as “anti-elitist,” and strives to work within site conditions, circulation patterns and structure for a creative approach to architecture.

Shelly Kappe introduces Harwell Hamilton Harris prior to his lecture. He sets out to present a large number of projects in sequence to create a story of his work and life in architecture. He begins with projects from as early as 1929 discussing primarily residential work with a focus on structure and often the use of reinforced concrete. His first built house dealt with the creation of outdoor space despite the small size of the house and the lot, including an enclosed garden to accompany each bedroom.

Harris continues his presentation with additional residential projects. He explains his attempts to position the entrance of a house at the center to minimize hallway space in the overall residence. He goes on to present a hillside house in which he played with the organization of volumes both in alignment and in contrast to the contours of the landscape. In doing so, he was able to establish a diversity of views around the site. He additionally speaks about a drive through garage design for a house in Los Angeles as a main entry element.
