Peter Cook Part One The Lost Art Of Architectural Composition The Ingredients

February 4, 2011 | Video Lecturer:
Introduction by:

Sir Peter Cook describes his talk as a the first of three related lectures. While acknowledging the attractive simplicity of dogmatic rules, Cook argues instead for the idiosyncratic, the irregular, and deviations. Cook describes the leftover infrastructure of urban environments as layered relics of past organizational systems. Cook stresses the importance of clearly communicating ones intentions through innovative detailing and construction methods. Cook stresses simplicity, style, and similarity, illustrating them with an entry in a tower competition. Cook concludes with a discussion of some ongoing projects in his office, including educational buildings in Vienna and Australia, relating their design to some of the qualities he has been discussing.

Eames Demetrios

March 1, 2006 | Video Lecturer:

Artist Eames Demetrios shows and discusses the films of his grandparents, Charles and Ray Eames, and how filmmaking and other art practices were seen as an extension of their architectural design process. Demetrios shows his work on a CD-ROM titled “Powers of Ten,” which includes excerpts from the films, “Powers of Ten,” “Toys,” “Rough Sketch,” and other related interviews. Design principles of constraint, scale, honesty of materials, and feedback loops, are a reoccurring theme throughout the lecture.
