Jeffrey Kipnis begins the eighth and final Fecundity of a Mossy Climate conversation by arguing that even though architecture has traditionally been focused on sobriety and rectitude, it can reflect other aspects of human experience. He discusses some projects by Hernan Diaz Alonso, stressing the use of animation as a design tool. Diaz Alonso and Kipnis discuss horror, ephemerality and impermanence as positive values, working within given problems, and digital versus filmic sensibilities. Diaz Alonso and Kipnis respond to comments from the audience, touching on temporality, nostaligia and working. They respond to Eric Owen Moss’s question about buildings that are virtual and buildings that exist in reality.
