Charles Jencks Architecture Of The Jumping Universe-clip_2901

Subclip

Charles Jencks reviews the genology of complexity theory, which tries to explain physics, mathematics, and psychology in non-linear and emergent ways. Jencks describes emergent properties and self-organization as properties gestated not made. He touches on green architecture and how the movement is the result of non-linear and emergent technological developments.

Hertzberger begins by stating that architecture should not express the extraordinary, but accommodate the ordinary. He states that within each project, there should be an essence of articulation, in which giving the appropriate dimension of use and function is accomplished. Another method by which this dimension is assigned is through human associations. These associations provide the means by which to create “less as more.”

Hertzberger discusses the indeterministic concepts incorporated into the Experimental Houses in Delft, Netherlands. Within this project, the program is not determined: the residents were provided with a shell in which they could individualize their spaces. He states that it is not the architect’s responsibility to make programmatic decisions, but to create conditions that provide choices. He emphasized the importance of understanding human behavior. And while some homes within this project had a “beautiful sort of awfulness,” he feels that when people are given freedom and responsibility, the create amazing things.


Lawrence Halprin

Lawrence Halprin is an environmental designer, town planner, landscape architect, and filmmaker. He presents slides of his work, and comments on the current state of architecture. Halprin questions the meaning, content, and intention of architecture, and asks what the real value of building places. He states that for human beings to live in, be creative in, and live out a biologically sound life, architecture should be deeply emotional and more than the sum of its parts.

Lawrence Halprin argues that architecture should create deeply emotional places for human beings to live in, be creative in, and live out
biologically sound lives. He stresses that architecture should be more than the sum of its parts. He shows archetypes of religious architecture from around the world and discusses his own work.
