Celia Pearce Virtual Reality And Architecture As A Narrative Art-clip_2655

Subclip

Celia Pearce responds to questions from the audience. Topics include linear and non-linear experiences, the ability of film to manipulate time, and how new media creates a new storytelling paradigm. In opposition to film directors, the interactive director gives up the control of the character and gives it to the audience.


Charles Jencks Architecture Of The Jumping Universe

April 4, 1995 | Video Lecturer:

Charles Jencks argues for abandoning failed modernist views of society and favors engaging networks and complex systems to stimulate architectural design. Jencks critiques modernism and modernization, reviews some responses to moderist failures, and investigates the modern movement in terms of capitalist ideology. Jencks ends with a contentious question and answer session.

Charles Jencks Architecture Of The Jumping Universe-clip_2898

Subclip

Charles Jencks, introduced by Michael Rotondi, reviews the history and influence of modernist ideals. Jencks presents an array of projects and scientific discoveries to illustrate current discussions of postmodernist non-linearity, emergent properties, and complexity.

Subclip

Charles Jencks reviews the genology of complexity theory, which tries to explain physics, mathematics, and psychology in non-linear and emergent ways. Jencks describes emergent properties and self-organization as properties gestated not made. He touches on green architecture and how the movement is the result of non-linear and emergent technological developments.

Subclip

Charles Jencks discusses his idea of cosmogenic architecture, as something based in information and the computational nature of complexity sciences. He argues that contemporary architecture needs to engage with time and evolution. He suggests self-generating systems will devise forms free of allusions to prior architecture representations, as illustrated by Frank O. Gehry’s Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao.

Subclip

Charles Jencks answers questions about unpredictability, self-organization, emergent properties, the failed promises of modernism, and the ability of architects to influence society. He also talks about postmodern eclecticism and openness, and how it deals with complex forms and representation.


Christian Hubert And Sylvia Lavin The Double Bill

March 24, 1993 |
Introduction by:

Christian Hubert and Sylvia Lavin each present their own lecture, both of them dealing with architecture’s relationship with emerging sciences and computer generated forms. Though the two lecture separately, they share a sense of shifting away from past assumptions of form and embracing new possibilities created by science and new virtual environments. While Hubert gives a more historical view of the relationships between body, desire, technology, and form, Lavin discusses contemporary views of emergence through data study and algorithmic processing. The two hope architecture can take advantage of emergent sciences as a means of formulating new ideas of how society, form and technology coexist.
