Charles Jencks discusses the language of contemporary architectural practice in terms of metaphor, syntax, words, and semantics. He discusses Robert Venturi’s opposition of the duck and the decorated shed. Because only the first half of the lecture is seen on this video, only metaphor and syntax are described through a series of projects like the Jorn Utzon’s Sydney Opera House.
