Subclip

Under the theme “Space and event,” Bernard Tschumi discusses his early publications Advertisements for Architecture (1977) and The Manhattan Transcripts (1981), and the early follies that led to the project for La Vilette (1982-98). He discusses his projects for the Tokyo Opera House (1986) and Kansai Airport (1988) and Le Fresnoy Art Center (1997) in terms of “Program and Juxtaposition.” Tschumi describes the advent of digital design in conjunction with the theme “Vectors and envelopes,” including projects such as the Rouen Concert Hall (2001) and the Vacheron Constantin Headquarters (2005).

Olin outlines the scope of his office’s work, which encompasses landscape design for universities, parks and commercial developments. He then explains the role of the landscape architect, arguing that the scope of his work is often misunderstood. Olin describes his interest in working with the “lost space” and “looseness” of contemporary cities. He documents the process of carving out a new civic space in Seattle.


SciFI Symposium The City After The Economy-clip_3814

Subclip

Participating by video, Amale Andraos and Dan Wood of the Manhattan firm Work AC describe their book, 49 Cities, which examines a wide variety of built and hypothetical urban environments, mapping their ecological, economic, and industrial organization. In a brief history of urban housing, they reveal that Le Corbusier’s Radiant City seemed to consistently rank in the top of their subjective categories. They discuss the resurgence of urban farming and sustainablity as layering the environment and contemporary discourse.

Saitowitz describes a park in Indiana which integrates elements derived from site and program requirements. The original attempt was to draw the city into the park, but as the park became a popular primary destination the project was expanded in order to draw park-goers into the city. He goes on to present a continuous yet programmatically and organizationally modulating light/bench/wall system along the Embarcadero in San Francisco. The project’s unforseen appeal to skateboarders lead to a skatepark commission in Kentucky. This park utilizes continuous surface movement which integrates interior and exterior spaces. The park provides a link to the surrounding modes of movement as skaters flow above internal spaces at the level of an adjacent highway.

Josep Fuses documents a series of projects he has completed, beginning with a competition for housing in Barcelona. He presents a project for a public park, explaining the goal of a flexible, communal space. A project for the Mediterranean coast was intended to delineate the border between public beaches and private houses. Fuses concludes with a discussion of his design principles, identifying a preference for simple construction techniques, and freedom from care and tradition.
