Sorkin argues that his work is based on human locomotion defining urban scale. This is how heights and edges are defined. Sorkin stresses that a city should not go on forever. He presents a project in Laos that integrated agriculture with city housing adjacent to industry to allow a mixture of uses. He describes the process of signifying green intentions with forms and orienting points created
through the integration of windmills and other elements. Sorkin endeavors to harmonize with a balance of all of the resources and necessities of life on a single site. He additionally includes his “Eight Neutralities” of every design: energy, economy, waste, food, water, air, temperature, and movement.

Stan Allen Before And After Landscape Urbanism

March 4, 2009 | Video Lecturer:
Introduction by:

Stan Allen frames his lecture at SCI-Arc as a reappraisal of what was valuable about Landscape Urbanism, and its potential deficiencies. Allen considers the working variables in Landscape Urbanism with an attention to process and change. Through the presentation of several projects he shows how these variables informed his urban designs. These projects include the Taichung Gateway, the Yan-Ping Waterfront, and Gwanggyo Lakeside Park. He follows his discussion on Landscape Urbanism with a shift to smaller scale architectural projects including the Sagaponac House, Salim Publishing House, and Chosen Children Village Chapel.
