[cross-disciplinary conversations with the built environment]

ArchitectureTalk is dedicated to the task of undisciplinizing architecture. It seeks a way to bring new imaginings to how we live.

It is curated by Vikram Prakash, Professor of Architecture at the University of Washington in Seattle, USA.

About the opening.

ArchitectureTalk begins with recordings of three architects in the following order:

”Sometimes real architectural life interferes with intellectual architectural life,” is Rem Koolhaas in conversation with Hubert-Jan Henket; 

and then, most dramatically,  “There is no such thing…as architecture!” is Louis Kahn at the Aspen Conference of 1972. Kahn of course goes on, however, to vigorously defend the “spirit of architecture”!
