Introduction by:

Moss describes SCI-Arc’s role in promoting innovation and resisting codification of forms, techniques, styles, and methods. Moss stresses that SCI-Arc’s strength is its ability to pull from different practices as a means to inspire. He describes the importance of architecture engaging urban environments. He characterizes Los Angeles’s “lack of vision” as its secret for success, arguing that this creates the opportunity to reinvent the city’s image. Moss responds to questions, discussing the role of the architect in big infrastructural projects, negotiating public interest, and civic desires. He describes how SCI-Arc promotes such investigations.

Choosing not to talk about their urban planning work, Jorge Silvetti focuses on how he and his partner Rodolfo Machado think about buildings. He notes that the field of architecture has changed in drastic and unforeseen ways during his generation. Architecture has changed in response to society embracing a new era of democracy and rightfully challenging the exclusive hegemony of certain discourses. He states that although architecture cannot be many things, there are many architectures that exist today.
