Raphael Soriano Part Three

January 1, 1977 | Video Lecturer:

Raphael Soriano discusses his ideas and opinions about architecture. Referring to music, he contrasts Bach’s “natural” compositional procedures with the “gimmicks” of John Cage. He says that he does not know what the definition of “spiritual man” is, and that people are bamboozled by merchants of publicity who keep us from being natural humans. Ornate architecture that goes beyond its structure is “dangerous” because when one works for society, one must act with great responsibility.
