Introduction by:

Stanley Saitowitz discusses several projects, mostly in north California. He argues that modernism offers two path–“form and meaning,” and “space and experience”–and he is “more interested in space than in meaning.” In describing his design of houses, he refers to them as “linear configurations” and “bar houses,” because you can look through them from one room to another. He describes in detail the renovation a Victorian building in San Francisco for his office. He shows the Embarcadero Ribbon in San Francisco, a public landscape project in which he collaborated with Vito Acconci and Barbara Staufacher. Saitowitz concludes with a statement explaining his interest in “expanded architecture.”

Laurie Hawkinson From Object To Territory-clip_4467

Subclip

Laurie Hawkinson first identifies the title of her lecture as “From Object to Territory.” She describes a series of recently completed projects that explore the theme of territory. The first project is a renovation of the Corning Museum of Glass. Hawkinson explains the deployment of construction details and the consideration of integrating the building with the landscape. She discusses a service building for Pier 11 in lower Manhattan, explaining that the project deals with passive cooling and issues of scale and visibility. Hawkinson then documents an project for the New York Public Library, describing the strategy of extending public space into a vertical surface, and generating spaces in the building using natural light. Hawkinson characterizes the built form of the Museum for Women in Battery Park as an accumulation of information.

Bouman discusses two projects that have a physical manifestation. Connecting Museum Island in Berlin is about employing a common informational and wayfinding element to establish relationships between the various museums, and the city beyond. The second project is an adaptable inflatable building, in which the program, space and media are all curated, and can be altered based on the social conditions.


Ole Bouman Architecture As A Way Of Publishing

Introduction by:

Ole Bouman, the editor and chief of Archis magazine offers his solution to architecture’s loss of relevancy. His diagnosis is that built architecture is too slow, and occurs at the level of the intellect. In order to compete with other ideas, architecture has to operate at the emotional level, so media, and specifically his magazine Archis can be employed to tease out the architecture of our daily world, bypassing the need for physical building.

Lewis and Lewis present a residence hall for the College of Wooster in Ohio. They interviewed students and analyzed the program, to optimize living groups and social spaces. An additional concern was creating a strong relationship between the residence hall and an adjacent park. One of the project constraints was a requirement for a pitched roof, which they exploited to create new spatial arrangements.
