Introduction by:

Mohamed Sharif reviews his Miesien education in Scotland, his un-Miesien Ben Nicholson studio at IIT as an exchange student, and his investment in pattern making and pattern scrutiny. Sharif presents three of his projects done at the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD): an architecture lecture hall, a library adaptation, and the Inside Jobsexhibition. He presents four projects for Santa Monica. The first, Liquid Sky, is a public space stemming from his obsession with the conical hourglass. The last three, forwardneverstraight, Treemedia, and Santa Monica Orthodontics express moments when a building you are looking at winks back at you.

Mohamed Sharif is Principal of Sharif Studio and a faculty member at SCI-Arc. Sharif’s lecture offers insight into the educational background that began with a Miesien education in Scotland to the un-Miesien Ben Nicholson studio at IIT as an exchange student. Sharif discusses his investment in pattern making and pattern scrutiny from the Nicholson studio, and the notion of Miesien rationality and the irrationality of Kurt Schwitters coexisting. In this context, Sharif presents seven projects to the SCI-Arc audience. In this clip Sharif presents four projects in Santa Monica. The first, Liquid Sky, is a public space stemming from his obsession with the conical hourglass. The last three, forwardneverstraight, Treemedia, and Santa Monica Orthodontics express moments when a building you are looking at winks back at you.

Shigeru Ban discusses his projects in relation to concepts of transparency of space. Ban compares Mies Van der Rohe’s visual transparency through the use of curtain walling to that of physical transparency used in traditional Japanese architecture. He goes on to describe how his projects aim to expand the physical limits of architecture and create flexible spaces.


Charles Jencks Architecture Of The Jumping Universe-clip_2899

Subclip

Charles Jencks grounds modernism in the Newtonian cosmology and its concept of mathematical order. He also links modern architecture with corporate ideas of power and image, using Nazi architecture as evidence political might displayed through formal order. Jencks describes the political alignment of Mies van der Rohe, as illustrated by his Lake Shore Drive Residence and IBM Center projects in Chicago.
