Eric Owen Moss: Through the glass darkly (April 4, 2000)01:16:28

Eric Owen Moss begins his lecture by declaring that architecture is simultaneously and dialectically poetry and content. He compares city planning to soccer as a system with an underlying order and method, but with an appearance of freedom from order. Moss reflects on the idea that buildings are about almost nothing or almost everything. He discusses his work in Culver City, referencing a Taoist shrine in Kyoto, the configuration of centripetal and centrifugal forces, a Hindu dancing Shiva, and a musical score by John Cage.
