Subclip

Herwig Baumgartner and Scott Uriu discuss projects that are aggregations of similar objects, such as the City Futura urban plan (2010), the Coral Lamp (2012), a pedestrian bridge in Bangalore, a cruise ship terminal in Keelung (2012), and a soccer stadium complex for Rio (2013). They conclude by reviewing three current projects: a lounge chair, a house in the Hollywood Hills, and a transit center in Northern California.

Maltzan continues his lecture with a discussion of work conducted outside of Los Angeles. He presents a pavillion-bookstore designed for a park in Jinhua, China as an invited component of a conceptual master plan by Ai Weiwei. He continues with a description of a competition entry for the Canadian Museum of Human Rights, a project which he attributes to a shift in his work from organization based on predetermined narrative toward that of an elastically connected open network. This interest continues in a master planning project in Milan which proposed a campus of buildings that engaged the edge of the primary site in response to difficult political realities emanating from the site itself.

Maltzan concludes with two projects which, in addition to strong urban engagement, address social interaction and environmental intent through negotiations of structure and geometry. For an Art and Science Museum in Fresno, CA Maltzan creates a social overlap with the city by floating the building to generate a shaded public plaza and exposing the building’s underbelly while establishing seamed openings both through and into the building. Lastly, for Pirelli in Milan, he creates a mid-height bridged connection between two office buildings, both allowing for flexibility in use and tenancy within the two structures and generating new social connections through the use of an open bat-wing truss.


Steven Holl Phenomenon Of Relations

November 18, 1987 | Video Lecturer:

Steven Holl presents an abbreviated text and accompanying project sited in Milan, Italy. This text focuses on his experiments in urbanism, dealing with densities, the relationships between perspective and plan in understanding a city, programming in parallel to designing, and the tactile impression of a city. Holl reads from this text while displaying accompanying images and diagrams to illustrate his intentions. He finally presents his project for a large site on the outskirts of Milan which incorporates many programmatic concepts and organizational methods of gradiated density.

Steven Holl discusses a proposal for the outskirts of Milan. He describes Milan’s concentric rings and dispersive density, and its patterns of city walls and canals. He explains his intention to move away from building typologies and focus on relationships, as he reverses the city density patterns across the site. His interest in programming leads to such proposals as a hotel for unhappy lovers, a lake with homes for retired mariners and a design school where instructors live above the studio spaces, and so are compelled to work with students at all hours of the day and night.
