Introduction by:

Nathan Bishop describes teaching at RISD, and shows some work produced in his studio there. He discusses some of his own projects that are focused on site and place. Bishop describes the Schneider House in Westport, as a set of events in plan. He characterizes the O’Keefe residence as a set of events in section. He discusses a series of projects in which episodic ordering systems are applied at urban scale. One inspiration was the shifting identities of characters in David Lynch’s 2001 film “Mulholland Drive.” Bishop presents a competition entry for a new school of architecture in Melbourne.

Nathan Bishop discusses a series of projects in which episodic ordering systems are applied at urban scale. One inspiration was the shifting identities of characters in David Lynch’s 2001 film “Mulholland Drive.” Bishop identifies five sites and their accompanying “episodes,” including an area at the edge of Boston defined by a fragmented edge condition. He discusses urban mapping techniques, citing Giambattista Nolli’s 1748 map of Rome. Bishop presents a video of an installation in Paris.


SCIFI Symposium Other New Urbanisms Part Two

In part two of this Future Initiatives symposium Orhan Ayy?ce and Sylvia Lavin lead a discussion about the aims and intentions of the individual presentations.

Sylvia Lavin discusses new urbanism and the anxiety present in the presentations. The group discusses how the architect can take back urban planning initiatives by resolving popular social projects with ethical logistics instead of digital formalism. They analyze the role of architecture schools in exploring new ways of urban involvement.


SCIFI Symposium Other New Urbanisms Part One

SCI-Arc’s Future Initiatives program hosts a symposium on the possibilities and pitfalls of innovative and contemporary approaches to city making. David Bergman and Peter Zellner moderate; David Fletcher, Mia Lehrer, and Andrew Zago present their work; Orhan Ayy?ce and Sylvia Lavin respond. The panelists discuss their recent L.A. River competition entries which map local conditions to generate design elements, trying to predict the future.
