Stanley Saitowitz

September 24, 2003 | Video Lecturer:
Introduction by:

Stanley Saitowitz discusses several projects, mostly in north California. He argues that modernism offers two path–“form and meaning,” and “space and experience”–and he is “more interested in space than in meaning.” In describing his design of houses, he refers to them as “linear configurations” and “bar houses,” because you can look through them from one room to another. He describes in detail the renovation a Victorian building in San Francisco for his office. He shows the Embarcadero Ribbon in San Francisco, a public landscape project in which he collaborated with Vito Acconci and Barbara Staufacher. Saitowitz concludes with a statement explaining his interest in “expanded architecture.”

Steven Holl further describes his view of “compression” as the simultaneous influence of multiple irreducible elements on a built form. He discusses psychological associations and the need of architects to mine these. Holl describes the Whitney Water Purification Plant in New Haven, several houses, and the Loisium winery and hotel in Austria, in terms of the mystical, multivalent elements of architecture.

Sorkin describes several urban design projects he has worked on, including senior housing of the future, projects for Jerusalem and Beirut, and alterations to the University of Chicago campus. Sorkin’s master plans employ, in places, deliberate vagueness to suggest a range of possibilities. In all the projects, Sorkin stresses ecological and climactic considerations.
