Charles Jencks: Towards a new paradigm (November 10, 2003)01:49:33

Charles Jencks discusses architecture’s shifting paradigm in accordance with emerging themes in contemporary architecture. Using current architectural projects and current discoveries in science, Jencks argues for a more intricate architecture that uses orders of nature and laws of science to compliment emergent design processes that contain metaphors and signifiers to pursue meaning. Though he admits his vision is pristinely
positive, he cautions the kitsch usage will weaken the significance of architecture in mainstream culture.
