Subclip

Laurie Hawkinson first identifies the title of her lecture as “From Object to Territory.” She describes a series of recently completed projects that explore the theme of territory. The first project is a renovation of the Corning Museum of Glass. Hawkinson explains the deployment of construction details and the consideration of integrating the building with the landscape. She discusses a service building for Pier 11 in lower Manhattan, explaining that the project deals with passive cooling and issues of scale and visibility. Hawkinson then documents an project for the New York Public Library, describing the strategy of extending public space into a vertical surface, and generating spaces in the building using natural light. Hawkinson characterizes the built form of the Museum for Women in Battery Park as an accumulation of information.
