Curated and produced by PLANE—SITE, this video series features interviews with prominent architects reflecting on the topics of TIME SPACE EXISTENCE, part of the 2016 collateral program at the Venice Architecture Biennale, hosted by the Global Art Affairs Foundation. The diverse roster of accomplished architects includes Denise Scott Brown (USA), Peter Eisenman (USA), Curtis W. Fentress (USA), Meinhard von Gerkan (Germany), Dirk Hebel (Switzerland), Frei Otto (Germany), and Wong Mun Summ and Richard Hassell (Singapore). The series was originally composed for viewing for the duration of the TIME SPACE EXISTENCE exhibition, but now continues to seek out the unique perspectives of accomplished architects on these universal architectural topics.
PLANE—SITE sat down for a memorable conversation with Peter Eisenman in his New York City office. Eisenman, a distinguished American architect known as one of the famous New York Five, offers his impressions of the paradigm shifts of global architecture, the conundrum of teaching the architecture of the present, and the common thread which can be traced throughout his entire career.
