Subclip

Saitowitz proceeds with his lecture, discussing several urban projects through which he has attempted to challenge conservative decision-making in the San Francisco zoning office. He presents a building which took advantage of code allowing for sectional inclusion of outdoor space in the Floor Area Ratio in addition to integrating a structural type which allows for greater programmatic flexibility. He goes on to show his work on several lager-scale urban complexes which integrate post-tensioned structural members and describes continued navigating around zoning roadblocks.


Roger Sherman

Roger Sherman discusses his work and ideas, starting with the West Hollywood Civic Center competition that brought him to Los Angeles, and the scale and form of Los Angeles. Sherman argues that traditional techniques of representation are inadequate to represent the reality of Los Angeles. He discusses game theory and land use law as alternative tools, and relates them to housing and public space. Sherman sits downs to discuss issues raised during his lecture with the audience, which includes Tom Buresch, Neil Denari, Eric Kahn, Mary-Ann Ray, Russell Thomsen and others.
