Peter Cook Part One The Lost Art Of Architectural Composition The Ingredients

February 4, 2011 | Video Lecturer:
Introduction by:

Sir Peter Cook describes his talk as a the first of three related lectures. While acknowledging the attractive simplicity of dogmatic rules, Cook argues instead for the idiosyncratic, the irregular, and deviations. Cook describes the leftover infrastructure of urban environments as layered relics of past organizational systems. Cook stresses the importance of clearly communicating ones intentions through innovative detailing and construction methods. Cook stresses simplicity, style, and similarity, illustrating them with an entry in a tower competition. Cook concludes with a discussion of some ongoing projects in his office, including educational buildings in Vienna and Australia, relating their design to some of the qualities he has been discussing.

Introduction by:

David Erdman was the principal of Servo in Los Angeles before establishing davidclovers with Clover Lee. Erdman discusses his projects in terms of mass production and mass media. Mass production is used here to indicate a “series of combined methods that explore new configurations of mass.” Mass media is understood as a combination of mass in the architectural sense, and media in the sense of”fluid, transitory, ephemeral, and immaterial.”

Nathan Bishop Sitings

March 12, 2010 | Video Lecturer:
Introduction by:

Nathan Bishop describes teaching at RISD, and shows some work produced in his studio there. He discusses some of his own projects that are focused on site and place. Bishop describes the Schneider House in Westport, as a set of events in plan. He characterizes the O’Keefe residence as a set of events in section. He discusses a series of projects in which episodic ordering systems are applied at urban scale. One inspiration was the shifting identities of characters in David Lynch’s 2001 film “Mulholland Drive.” Bishop presents a competition entry for a new school of architecture in Melbourne.
