Michael Rotondi introduces Ad?le Santos, nothing that she he has been the chair of the architecture program at the University of Pennsylvania where she hosted an annual Design Week event that became critical in forming relationships between many architects, including Craig Hodgetts, Wolf Prix and Michael Sorkin. She is currently working on a project for an affordable housing development in North Hollywood that she won in a competition sponsored by MOCA. Santos has broken many barriers for women in architecture, principal of her own firm and practicing for over twenty years with experience in both architecture and urban design.


Steven Holl Phenomenon Of Relations

November 18, 1987 | Video Lecturer:

Steven Holl presents an abbreviated text and accompanying project sited in Milan, Italy. This text focuses on his experiments in urbanism, dealing with densities, the relationships between perspective and plan in understanding a city, programming in parallel to designing, and the tactile impression of a city. Holl reads from this text while displaying accompanying images and diagrams to illustrate his intentions. He finally presents his project for a large site on the outskirts of Milan which incorporates many programmatic concepts and organizational methods of gradiated density.

Subclip

Steven Holl discusses a proposal for the outskirts of Milan. He describes Milan’s concentric rings and dispersive density, and its patterns of city walls and canals. He explains his intention to move away from building typologies and focus on relationships, as he reverses the city density patterns across the site. His interest in programming leads to such proposals as a hotel for unhappy lovers, a lake with homes for retired mariners and a design school where instructors live above the studio spaces, and so are compelled to work with students at all hours of the day and night.

Peter Cook describes his exploration of making anti-cities that appear and disappear. He proposed an Instant City, which would arrive in villages and create a temporary metropolis for a week and then move on like a circus. His disintegrated city telescoped from the arcadian sector with the mayor’s office, through smaller and smaller businesses, down to a man selling shoelaces on a table. When the London Times asked him to create a proposal for South London, he determined the area was so bad he suggested flooding it.


Peter Cook And Christine Hawley

Peter Cook and Christine Hawley alternately present their work. Peter Cook discusses the reasonableness of weirdness in architecture. Hawley discusses her interest in meshes. Cook talks about making anti-cities that appear and disappear, and an urban plan to unify Frankfurt. Hawley discusses their design for a museum of glass for the town of Langen, and her experiment to derive a design from observations of the ruin of a Victorian school.
