Jeffrey Kipnis & Alejandro Hernandez Galvez: On Track (October 17, 2017)

Alejandro Hernandez Galvez questions Jeffrey Kipnis about architecture and politics, prompting a discussion of issues including the politics of the new, Mark Fisher, William Morris, modernist rupture as a tradition, critical nostalgia, evolution versus revolution, optimism, and critical regionalism. Kipnis argues that architecture is most consequential producing projective relationships with other architects at the level of the project. He suggests that the most urgent need is for architecture to respond to the increasingly ramified and divergent narratives that make up the world.

Kipnis responds to comments from the audience about the production of the new, architectural agency, and ethical responsibilities.
