Wolf Prix What’s the Difference Number One-clip_4878

Subclip

Prix concludes with several projects of drastically differing scales. He addresses the integration of monumentality and dynamism. In principle he defends working in autocratic political contexts today as analogous to working for the Catholic Church in the past, but personally refuses to work on projects that conform to autocratic ideals. Prix discusses materials and fabrication, showing examples
of ship building technologies combined with forms made from hand bent reeds.

Hodgetts and Fung discuss their CRA project, which was a mixed use program articulated within one space. Hodgetts described their governing motif by stating that all pieces within the architectural framework were related in a densely packed manner, similar to that of a watch. Next, they discuss their project of a headquarters for a talent and modeling agency. They utilized the concept of automotive design or ship building in the sense that interstitial, residual space between the volumes possessed its own identity. Simultaneously, they sought to incorporate an ephemeral quality through the borrowing of the palette of materials from the surrounding city.
