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.

Subclip

Maltzan begins his lecture by presenting three residential projects in process and describes his approach to residential work as “microcosms or distillations of larger and more complex social organizations.” He explains the role of view and plays with traditional lot usage in a house on Broad Beach in Malibu. He investigates a geometric and social inversion of the modernist blur between interior and exterior in the Pittman Dowell Residence. Lastly, he explores geometric inversion as a sectional problem while employing skin effects that animate rectilinear geometry.

Gunther Domenig Structures That Fit My Nature-clip_3350

Subclip

Domenig desribes his house, Steinhaus, in Steindorf, Austria. Inspired by the mountains and stones in the region, Domenig maintains that the house is the truest expression of his personal style. While the use of concrete and steel usually imply a very grounded structure, Domenig makes shapes seem to float and appear weightless. While he claims it is inspired by vernacular architecture, he admits it is unlike a typical Austrian house.
