Architecture Gallery Lecture

 

Enrique Walker

DESIGN THEORIES, 1966

This lecture revisits, fifty years after their publication, Aldo Rossi's The Architecture of the City and Robert Venturi's Complexity and Contradiction in Architecture. It examines in particular the notion of design theory—a question Rossi formulated without addressing, and Venturi addressed without formulating—and traces its afterlife in contemporary architecture.

Enrique Walker is an architect and Associate Professor at the Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation, Columbia University, where he also directs the Master of Science program in Advanced Architectural Design. His publications include, Tschumi on Architecture: Conversations with Enrique Walker (Monacelli, 2006) and Lo Ordinario (Gustavo Gili, 2010).
