Charles Jencks Towards A New Paradigm

November 10, 2003 | Video Lecturer:
Introduction by:

Charles Jencks discusses architecture’s shifting paradigm in accordance with seven emerging themes in contemporary architecture. Using current architectural projects and current discoveries in science, Jencks argues for a more intricate architecture that uses orders of nature and laws of science to compliment emergent design processes that contain metaphors and signifiers to pursue meaning. Though he admits his vision is pristinely
positive, he cautions the kitsch usage will weaken the significance of architecture in mainstream culture.

Eric Owen Moss Brother Can You Spare A Paradigm

March 16, 1994 | Video Lecturer:

Moss presents a poetic assault, arguing architecture lacks an inspiring paradigm, and introduces his idea of “provisional paradigm.” This idea roots itself in being able to assemble, dissemble, and re-assemble anticipating an eventual end. He describes his work in respect to conscious manipulations of site, form, and typology investigating provisional concepts, such as, inversion, anticipation, and confusion. Moss moves through a series of past and current projects revealing personal criticisms of his own work.
