Introduction by:

Zago describes his current architectural interests to an audience of Making + Meaning participants. He talks about volumes, sectional objects, weak form and creating a sense of volume through relaxing symmetry. Zago discusses negative space especially and when it is achieved through incision and pressure. He shows his entry in the competition for the National Museum of Korean Contemporary History in Seoul, and other projects. Zago concludes by answering several questions about the work he showed and his architectural intentions. He feels SCI-Arc is not a mere willfulness, but rather a significant exploration into architectural limits.

Introduction by:

Moss describes SCI-Arc’s role in promoting innovation and resisting codification of forms, techniques, styles, and methods. Moss stresses that SCI-Arc’s strength is its ability to pull from different practices as a means to inspire. He describes the importance of architecture engaging urban environments. He characterizes Los Angeles’s “lack of vision” as its secret for success, arguing that this creates the opportunity to reinvent the city’s image. Moss responds to questions, discussing the role of the architect in big infrastructural projects, negotiating public interest, and civic desires. He describes how SCI-Arc promotes such investigations.
